Taking Back Our Voices is a new work in progress piece directed by Oonagh Murphy. It’s the culmination of seven months of meetings between six theatre artists (Caitríona Ní Mhurchú, Kathy Rose O’Brien, Aoibhinn McGinnity, Sorcha Kenny, Niamh Shaw and Úna Kavanagh) and women who have been involved in prostitution.

As someone who has been following the (slow) legislative process surrounding issues related to the sex industry in Ireland, as well as campaigns from Ruhama and the ICI, in particular the Turn Off The Red Light campaign, I’m really looking forward to checking this out. Sounds pretty riveting.

Taking Back Our Voices will show at the Peacock Theatre on November 16th and 17th. Tickets aren’t on sale yet, but when they are, it’ll be through the Abbey box office.
