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

With the referendum to Repeal the Eighth Amendment on the horizon, a national conversation about reproductive rights has begun.

In a deeply personal and bravely funny testimony, actor, comedian and activist Tara Flynn shares her account of having to travel out of Ireland for an abortion. With searing honesty, Not a Funny Word examines the status quo through one woman’s own journey. With songs.

Not A Funny Word plays as part of Where We Live, presented by THISSISPOPBABY with St Patrick’s Festival 2018. Where We Live is funded by The Arts Council.

Not A Funny Word was also presented as a work in progress here at the Abbey Theatre as part of What’s Happening Now in May 2017.
