THEATRE

Matinee: Sat 26 Jul & Sat 2 Aug, 2pm €25/22 Age Suitability: 16 + (contains strong adult themes) On the night of December 16th 2012, a young woman and her male friend boarded a bus in urban Delhi heading for home. What followed changed the lives of these two people and countless others forever. People poured onto the streets in grief and rage demanding justice. Legally prevented from revealing her real name – the press named her NIRBHAYA, “Fearless”. Who knows why one woman’s fate touched so many of our lives, but in the wake of her death, many of us began to break the silence and speak. Internationally acclaimed playwright and director Yael Farber creates a searing new work that cracks open the cone of silence around women whose lives have been shattered by genderbased violence. With an extraordinary cast and creative team from India, Farber brings us a blistering evocation of that terrible night and the ripples of change it set in motion. Tearing away the shame that keeps the survivors silent NIRBHAYA is a voyage into a tapestry of personal testimonies that speaks for a nation and world no longer able to hold the tides of change at bay.
