        Stolen Child

Stolen Child

the play tells the story of a young Dublin woman's journey to find her natural mother. She enlicits the help of a shambolic private detective whose irreverent humour and hard-drinking lifestyle mask a deep understanding of human frailty. Parallel to her quest is the heartbreaking personal story of her mother's upbringing by nuns in a 1940s Industrial school and the harsh facts surrounding the enforeced adoption of her newborn baby. 'stolen Child' was acclaimed as an impotant and ground-breaking new play when first presented by Calypso Productions in 2002. It was one of the first works to explore the secret history of Ireland's Industrial schools.

written by Bairbre Ni Chaoimh And Yvonne Quinn. Applications for copies of the script and performance rights should be sent to or to 3, Saint Laurence's Place, Fontenoy Street, Dublin 7.
