Newry Town Hall, Bank Parade, Newry, down, BT34 1DQ
Newry Arts Festival

About

The Daughters of Róisín by Aoibh Johnson is a poignant ode to Ireland's hidden past that explores sanctioned abuse against women over the last 100 years.

The play uses song, poetry and ghostly silence to explore the experience of unmarried mothers and their babies who were forced to suffer at the hands of those who should have cared for them.

The play has sold out performances and had rapturous standing ovations in Derry, Belfast, London and Dublin.

"Aoibh Johnson has a captivating presence." The Adelaide Show

"Excellent. Seeing it once might just not be enough." Everything Theatre "Powerfully and brilliantly executed. Genius." Bernadette Devlin McAliskey
