Based on the book ‘Bird’s Nest Soup’ by Hanna Greally this production is currently in development. We are beginning our journey with a showing on Sunday 22nd September in The Mill Theatre in Dundrum. At the newly established Mill Miscellanea night in the studio space at The Mill we will be showing a performed reading of an extract from our new piece.
This fascinating story is the experience of Hanna’s twenty year incarceration at St Loman’s Psychiatric Institution during the 1940’s and 50’s after going in for ‘a rest’. Hanna’s story reflects many untold stories and lost identities of the 0.7% of the Irish population at that time that were patients in a Psychiatric Institution.
This piece created, produced and performed by Andrea Scott will be adapted for stage by Gill McCaw with audiovisuals by Furry and music by Grainne Mulvey.
Keep an eye out for updates on our journey!
