Paula Spencer is one of life’s survivors. An alcoholic and victim of domestic abuse, her story is one of a woman who with humour, courage and unflinching honesty, learns how to live once again.
Adapted from Roddy Doyle’s novels Paula Spencer and The Woman Who Walked into Doors, this one woman show is a moving testimony of addiction, maternal love and an indomitable spirit.
Paula Spencer, la femme qui se cognait dans les portes, is a Franco-Irish collaboration uniting the acclaimed French director Michel Abécassis with the Irish-born actress Olwen Fouéré.
There will be a post-show discussion with Roddy Doyle, Olwen Fouéré, Michel Abécassis and Jean Guy Lecat following the show on 8 January.
A photographic exhibition by Francis Peyrat, displaying production shots will be displayed in the upper foyer for the duration of the show. Performed in French with English subtitles
