Forced to leave home. Silenced. Scared. Abandoned.
This is the true story of Hanna Greally, who was a ‘patient’ for 18 years in St. Loman’s psychiatric institution, Mullingar.
In an extraordinary tale of empowerment, meet the woman who reclaimed her voice in her much loved book Bird’s Nest Soup, attracting nationwide attention with her appearance on RTE’s The Late Late show.
With its blend of movement, dialogue, visuals and music, this stage adaptation brings you into the remarkable world of her survival.

Hanna Greally’s personal scrapbook will also be presented.
