When a father’s world falls apart, he must battle through obstacles to ensure a future for him & his son.

Love; Laughter; Loss & Families left behind: UNGUARDED is a touching, & often comedic, new drama – developed by Louth actor/theatre-maker Anthony Kinahan – that uses imaginative physicality and vocal versatility & song, to highlight the vulnerable position many LGBTQ+ & non-LGBTQ+ families find themselves in due to the lack of regulation of Surrogacy in Ireland.

Directed by Anna Simpson (Quintessence Theatre) & developed under the Droichead Arts Centre Artist in Association in 2021 (with the support of the Arts Council of Ireland), this production is in association with Droichead and An Táin Arts Centre, Dundalk.

Audience Reactions: 

“Heartbreaking…but with the right amount of comic relief… I had great eyeliner on and it made me cry!.”

“An amazing play … An absolutely stellar performance, a beautiful, if heart-breaking at times story and the sheer stamina of acting, singing, movement & cinematic style on stage in his one-man show”
