A darkly comic play about class, poverty and the struggle to escape by award-winning playwright Kat Woods. Killymuck is a fictitious housing estate built on a paupers’ graveyard in 1970s Ireland. Inspired by real events, Kat Woods’ play sees Niamh navigate the trials
and tribulations of being a kid from the benefit class system. Educational barriers, lack of opportunity and the oppressive structures that are implicit in the cycle of impoverishment, all seem to conspire against the will to abdicate the media-constructed underclass stereotype.

Show is recommended for age 15+ due to strong language and adult content.

This event takes place in our Studio Theatre with an unreserved, tiered seating layout.
