Patrick Talbot Productions and Wild Productions Present MARY AND ME For International Women's Day

Patrick Talbot Productions and Wild Productions Present MARY AND ME For International Women's DayIreland 1986. A teenage girl begins a series of conversations with a statue of the Virgin Mary in a grotto.

Inspired by a true story, Mary and Me is a compelling imagining of a young woman's search for understanding and meaning when at a milestone in her life.

This new play, written and performed by Irene Kelleher, and directed by Belinda Wild, is a rich and funny evocation of the Ireland of the 1980's, while it also has a sharp contemporary resonance in respect of the current 8th Amendment debate.

Following the play's acclaimed appearances at the Edinburgh and Brighton festivals in 2017 Irene Kelleher now brings it back home to Cork city. As a bonus, ticket holders will also be treated to a witty and touching short new play, Bluetooth, before the main event. Written by Rachel Thornton and directed by Julie Kelleher, Bluetooth looks at a teenager, in the not too distant future who strikes up an unlikely friendship with an android.

See these charming two new plays, Mary and Me, and Bluetooth, at the Everyman, Tuesday 6th to Thursday 8th March. Tickets €20, concession €18, students €9, available from everymancork.com, or phone 021 4501 673. A post show talk will take place on International Women's Day, Thursday 8th March.
