1998. The last Magdalene Laundry has finally closed. Mother Brigid, a lonely old lady sits in the lounge of St. George’s Retirement home with her brusque nurse, Mary. It soon becomes clear their relationship is not what it seems.
Widely documented, the Magdalene Laundries were institutions for ‘fallen women’ where ‘voluntary prisoners’ were incarcerated to ‘wash their sins away’. How did British society fail generations of wome and children by allowing them to be wrongfully imprisoned and brutalised? What has happened to the survivors, our present day victims who cope with life in the aftermath of these traumatic experiences?
Rummage Theatre, inspired by real life stories, debut with a poignant and thought provoking piece of new writing. Be prepared to connect emotionally as Rummage dynamically bring characters to life, challenging moral judgements and sparking debate.
