Description

With the referendum coming up on the 25th May, BANBHA are taking The WIN on tour. Come and join us in the Loft at the Locke Bar, Limerick at 8pm on the 23rd May (after canvassing!).

The WIN

Nearly 30 years ago, when the 8th Amendment led the courts to rule that abortion information was illegal, Irishwomen had a lifeline: a secret phone number scrawled on toilet walls and chanted defiantly at demonstrations. It connected them to the Women’s Information Network (WIN), and the knowledge they so desperately needed. The WIN is a devised piece by emerging theatre company, BANBHA. The directors, composer and cast are using original documents from the Women's Information Network, as well as testimonies from the women involved, to create a piece of theatre exploring the hidden history of abortion in Ireland.


The WIN, while pertinent to the current debate about the issue, also smashes through the wall of silence that has stood for three decades about these women’s revolutionary work.

Directed by Cara Brophy-Browne & Tara Louise Morrison

Devised by Nitai Aleksiewicz, Cara Brophy-Browne, Susie Birmingham, Orla Devlin, Clíodhna Kelly, Kelly Kierans, Tara Louise Morrison, Laoise Murray, Jennifer Aust, Johanna O'Brien and Siobhan Clancy.

Original music composed by Susie Birmingham

Produced by: Saoirse Anton

“The WIN is a testament, not only to the talent of young Irish people, but to their concern about themselves, their fellow women, and their country.” - The City
