Kind Words Spoken

'Hard-hitting… turns the gut and lights the mind' - ****, The Irish Times

Sorcha Kenny presents, as part of First Fortnight Festival 2014



Dates: 09 Jan - 11 Jan

Show Time: 7.00pm

Tickets: €12

After a sell-out run at the Dublin Fringe Festival, DOLLS returns to the stage as the inaugural winner of the Fringe’s First Fortnight Award – a prize given to a show that challenges prejudice about mental-health issues. For the duration of the experience a group of female performers are owned by you. From every angle they look convincingly life like. Their movements have been strategically choreographed and set to a soundtrack of appropriated voices that will aim to manipulate you, the audience, to feel and to think. At the end of the performance you are free to leave with or without these thoughts and feelings. A show that promises to thrill and ignite.

The Anti Room’s Anna Carey and Sinead Gleeson will lead a panel, including Dolls director Sorcha Kenny on January 9th in Smock Alley Theatre at 8.30pm, Tickets are €5 ex fee but entry is free if you present your ticket from that evening’s performance of Dolls (subject to availability).

First Fortnight is  a charity-based organistion with the expressed aim of challenging mental health prejudice through the creative arts. For further information please check

An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
