Will truth out?

Set over one evening, Rathmines Road is a play that rages in a tiny room.

Fraught, funny and ferocious this new drama by Deirdre Kinahan challenges the cultural response to accusations of sexual assault.

Following a hugely successful run of Spinning in the 2014 Dublin Theatre Festival, Fishamble is delighted to present Deirdre’s latest powerful and questioning drama.  Bristling with tension, Rathmines Road unleashes a brutal truth that affects us all. It is a play that asks: when and how do we take responsibility?

Fishamble is an Olivier Award-winning, internationally acclaimed Irish theatre company, dedicated to the discovery, development and production of new work. In 2018 Fishamble celebrates 30 years of new plays in Ireland through its many productions and extensive development programme.
