Over the course of two decades and three relationships, Darja’s humour, tenacity and closely-guarded dreams have helped her to survive as an immigrant worker in a beat-up town in New Jersey.
Now she’s standing at a bus stop, reckoning with a precarious future, while American prosperity rushes by without her.
Written by Martyna Majok, winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize and nominee for the 2023 Tony Award for Best Play, and directed by Aoife Spillane-Hinks, Ironbound is a stirring and darkly funny portrait of a woman navigating the perils and possibilities of a radically changing world.
Ironbound premieres as part of Dublin Theatre Festival.
