Friday 02nd December 8pm
Wee Yarn Productions in association with Sole Purpse Productions
The Daughters of Róisín written and performed by Aoibh Johnson
Directed by Cahal Clarke, Produced by Patricia Byrne
Confined to a room for nine months in a house she once called her home. The Daughters of Róisín is a poignant ode to Ireland’s hidden past that explores the church and state sanctioned abuse against women over the last 100 years. Wee Yarn Productions invite you to witness and journey with this forsaken Daughter of Ireland.
