Imagine no one loves you and you have to leave home with nothing.

Shoes? Clothes? Passport? Mooncup? Where would you go? Would you feel free? Are you free at all if your ‘choices’ hurt? Are you free to hurt others if it stops them hurting you? Will the police believe you, or will they ask, ‘How did you know they will hurt you?’ Or is it naïve to believe they’d ask?

Before You Say Anything asks how everyone can be safe at the same time.

Supported by the Office of Public Works (OPW) and Dublin Castle. Developed at FRINGE LAB with the support of Dublin Fringe Festival.

Please Note: Before You Say Anything contains nudity and themes of mental health.
