“How far would you go for a cause you believed in? How far is too far?”
Ireland. 2018. Abortion is still illegal, another pregnant girl dies and Maia is forced into action. Maia impregnates herself intentionally to demand a legal abortion from the Irish government to set a precedence for abortion to be legalised. Hear a story that could divide a nation, win or lose a vote, and make history.
This multi-award nominated, five star play challenges the choices we are given, uproots the lies and the legacies we inherit, and boldly protests for the power of the individual. This show explores motherhood, fertility, bodily autonomy and the restrictive abortion laws in many countries around the world. Inspired by real cases of women fighting governments in order to receive medical care they need and the right to choose.

‘Vessel has tender and understated comedy in just the right places. A really beautiful piece of theatre which deals with its themes in a sensitive, yet exposing way, and accompanied by excellent performances.’ Theatre Weekly Edinburgh
