Rough Magic’s iconic and inspiring musical had a sell-out run at the 2015 Dublin Theatre Festival.
The Train, by Bill Whelan and Arthur Riordan, is a fictional celebration of actual events surrounding the legendary Contraceptive Train of 1971.
Determined to challenge the restrictive laws of the Irish State, a group of 47 trailblazing women take a train to Belfast and return to Dublin with forbidden contraceptives. This watershed moment is joyously captured by Arthur Riordan’s sharp wit and Bill Whelan’s dynamic score.
The Train explores a short journey which marked the beginning of a modern odyssey. An odyssey that is still incredibly relevant today.
