A new play by Associate Playwright, Lisa Tierney-Keogh.

On a quiet suburban street in Dublin, a piece of graffiti tears apart a group of neighbours, exposing a deep divide between them.

In one long scene over one night, six people must confront their pride, privilege and prejudice. Who will concede power and how will they move forward?

This Beautiful Village is a play about power. It breaks open the wounds of hurt women to reveal a story as relevant in Ireland as anywhere. It is an urgent message that exposes every side of the complex and ugly reckoning we are all facing.

Power will be undone. It won’t be pretty. But it could be beautiful.
