BAGLADY is a rarely performed play from one of Ireland’s leading playwrights, Frank McGuinness and you can see it during a special lunchtime performance at The Dock this Thursday, April 19 at 1pm.

Baglady is a touching and revealing drama on how a woman becomes alienated from life: the eponymous Baglady of the title is a gentle woman whose life has been destroyed by shocking violence. Starring Maria McDermotroe, the play explores the conditions and circumstances which caused the main character to become alienated from society and gradually reveals the terrifying events which shaped her life.

Baglady’s fraught attempts to exorcise her troubled ast also holds a mirror up to the ongoing debate about how Ireland can best come to terms with its own history.

The performance begins at 1pm and the admission price of w15/w12 includes a light lunch that will be served between 12.30 and 12.50pm. To book log onto www.thedock.ie or call (071) 9650828.
