Rathmines Road

Previewing at The Civic as part of Dublin Theatre Festival 2018.
Presented by Fishamble: The New Play Company and the Abbey Theatre

Will truth out?

Set over one evening, Rathmines Road by Deirdre Kinahan is a play that rages in a tiny room. Fraught, funny, and ferocious, this new drama challenges the cultural response to accusations of sexual assault.

Olivier Award-winning Fishamble and the Abbey Theatre are delighted to present Deirdre’s latest powerful and questioning drama. Bristling with tension, Rathmines Road unleashes a brutal truth that affects us all. It is a play that asks: when and how do we take responsibility?
