ATTEMPTS ON HER LIFE

Dates: 18 Apr - 05 May

Tickets: €7

Attempts to describe her?

Attempts to destroy her?

Martin Crimp’s 1997 play brings us on a whistle-stop journey through the emotional and political landscapes of our time, taking in art, surveillance, pornography, terrorism, genocide and globalisation along the way.

Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia.
