20 – 23 Sep | 8:45pm plus 4:15pm on 23 Sep | Boys’ School

Who are women? And what have they been doing all this time? Nothing like a primary source to answer this query. Nothing like a primary source chopped, screwed, and stuck over a spliced choral excerpt of a Cecil Sharp folksong. Part gig, part theatre, part documentary, this verbatim pop-opera exhumes its singing ghosts from the transcript of a 2002 RTÉ interview with Anne (aged 90) and Catherine (aged 88), who were raised by their grandmother Lady Augusta Gregory in Galway. This tuneful séance is less of a celebrity sighting and more of an automatic drawing spectacle.

Running time : 55 mins
