What Are they saying about the 8th Mrs Brown?

This piece was inspired by the fictional TV character Mrs Brown, which is set in Finglas, in North Dublin. A Finglas resident wonders what the people there think of the 8th amendment to the Irish constitution (which gives equal right to life to the foetus as to the pregnant woman), which is the subject of a referendum on 25th May. Taking a trip down memory lane and reviewing the hardships that putting the foetal hearbeat ahead of women’s health caused in Finglas (and all over Ireland). This audio was originally developed for a Speaking of IMELDA performance in Ireland in 2016.

The referendum to repeal the 8th Amendment to the Irish constitution and clear the way for permitting abortion up to 12 weeks takes place on 25th May. For more information, see the attached links

LISP theatre festival

You may remember our interview with Sharon Sexton in the summer when she told us about plans to stage the first London Irish Short Play Festival. Well, her call for submissions had a great response. Now she and her husband Cillian Donnachadha, who together head the Biscuits for Breakfast Theatre Company, have made their selection. Six plays will be performed at the London Irish Centre in Camden from October 20th for four nights. Two of the successful playwrights – Siubhan McNally and Brendan Kenny came into our studios to talk about the festival. They told Catherine Carroll to expect an entertaining evening with something for everyone – even if you don’t have a drop of Irish blood.
