19-19 June 2010


Tickets: 20


Set on a present day halting site The Trailer of Bridget Dinnigan follows matriarch Bridget and her family in the period after her husband’s death. Fiercely protective, Bridget will stop at nothing to ensure that her family’s reputation remains intact. Tensions rise when the eldest daughter announces her engagement and family secrets are revealed, which lead to tragic consequences.

This contemporary adaptation of the Spanish classic The House of Bernarda Alba, by Federico García Lorca, is the result of two years of research and collaboration between theatre-maker/writer Dylan Tighe, Traveller activist Catherine Joyce and eleven women from the Blanchardstown Traveller Development Group.

Contains some strong language.

There will be a post show discussion following the performance on Friday 18 June.
