This free rehearsed reading take place in the Studio Theatre on Saturday 21st July at 3pm.
Sisters! tells the story of a fictional single mother, Bernadette Boland and her sisters Kathleen and Noleen, against the backdrop of a changing Ireland of the 1970’s. The brewing culture of revolution sets the scene for Bernadette’s journey to empowerment and her search for “Home”.
While her sister Kathleen struggles with her new married life and the youngest, Noleen, embraces the budding sexual revolution, Bernadette is ostracised by her family and wider society. Sisters! explores the familial, social and class dynamnics of 1970s Dublin through the experiences of Bernadette and her two sisters.
The lives of Irish women have changed so much in the last fifty years, we want to celebrate how the past actions of ordinary women have won us the choices we have today, while acknowledging the contemporary struggles we continue to face.
The project originated in 2013 and has since undergone a series of workshops in Ireland, the UK and Italy to bring it to its current iteration.
This rehearsed reading is for a special invited audience and will include a facilitated feedback session with writer/director Tracy Ryan and musical director/composer Kaeylea Van Keith.
