Athlone Little Theatre’s production of Stolen Child by Bairbre Ní Chaoimh and Yvonne Quinn opens this Friday, February 26, at 8pm and runs until Friday, March 4.
Stolen Child was one of the first plays to explore the secret history of Ireland’s industrial schools, the plight of unmarried mothers, and the adoption process. Humorous yet moving, what begins as a personal journey for Angela Tiernan to discover her family history soon becomes a fascinating exploration into one of the darkest chapters in the history of modern Ireland.
Stolen Child features experienced actors Anne Hoey, Dermot McManus, Pat Canty, and Paula Eagney, and is directed by Paddy Martin. Book tickets at www.athlonelittletheatre.ie or (090 ) 6474324.
