100 YEARS OF WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE

May 17, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join this exciting countywide project to celebrate 100 years of Women’s Suffrage.

North Leitrim Women’s Centre, in association with Mohill Family Support Centre and Exit Does Theatre will be producing a living theatre performance piece in October this year. Supported by Peace IV. The project will involve research of the period and the battle for equal rights from 1918 to 2018.

 

Participants will devise a work based on the research with transition years students from St Clare’s Comprehensive School, Manorhamilton. The work is facilitated by Patrick McEneaney, who will devise and direct, and assisted by Dee Armstrong – music and design  – and Paul McDonnell – technician and set.

Exit Does Theatre aims to give participants a multi-faceted experience of the process of making theatre.
