"Well, what was I born for?… A great thing, surely…"
Katie Roche is a great woman. She is destined for big things and is determined to overcome any obstacle she meets. After marrying a respected man, Katie believes her ambitions will be realised.
However, her journey will not be a smooth one. Katie must confront those who prevent her from being an influential and expressive person. Will her determined spirit save her? Or has her fate already been decided?
Directed by Caroline Byrne, this fresh and invigorating production is your chance to rediscover Teresa Deevy’s timeless play.
