KILLYMUCK is presented in a double bill with Box Clever.
We are not all born equal.
If you're born into a working class family, you have less: less money, less support and crucially, less opportunity.
These two plays explore the political cause and effect of what being born with less means.
Killymuck gives an insight into how growing up on a council estate affects the present and informs the future.
Box Clever confronts us with the repercussions of systemic failure in politics to care about the working class.
Written with humour, care and urgency, this double bill of one woman shows put female working class voices front and centre.
Killymuck is a housing estate built on a paupers' graveyard in 1970s Ireland.
Inspired by real events, Kat Woods' play sees Niamh navigate the trials and tribulations of being a kid from the benefit system.
Educational barriers, impoverishment, depression and lack of opportunities conspire against the struggle to escape the underclass stereotype.
