What's Happening Now

In Ireland, we say “go to England” when we talk about that thing we are not supposed to talk about.

As a nation, we don’t talk about reproductive rights. But it’s time to.

In this deeply personal and bravely funny testimony, Tara Flynn shares her account of having to travel out of the country for an abortion.

This work in progress is presented as part of our What’s Happening Now series. Each performance will be followed by a discussion giving the opportunity for the audience to participate and ask questions of the makers as they develop the show.
