19-19 March 2011


Tickets: 10


ATTEMPTS ON HER LIFE journeys through seventeen distinct but interconnected scenarios, as a group of unnamed characters try to piece together the identity of the mysterious Anne.

She’s a terrorist threat, she’s a mother of three,

She’s a cheap cigarette, she is ecstacy,

…She drives a tank over neonates,

while choosing to bank, at competitive rates…

…She’s an artificial tan, she’s the fat in the pan,

She’s the film in the can, she’s the shit in the fan

Consumerised, commodified, objectified – a globalised phenomenon, is the Anne ultimate post-modern heroine?

“…driven by a radical contempt for the new global capitalism and its attempt to turn us all into depersonalised consumers… it is an act of theatre propelled by moral fervour.“


To accompany ATTEMPTS ON HER LIFE the students of the MA in Directing for Theatre at UCD will also present DIRECTIONS 7, a series of short performance pieces. For more information on DIRECTIONS 7 click here.
