Not At Home by THEATREclub
Between January 1980 and December 2014, at least 163,514 women and girls travelled from the Republic of Ireland to access safe abortion services in another country. Not At Home is an archive of testimony of women who have made this journey. From these texts, THEATREclub creates a durational art piece scheduled for public viewing toward the second weekend of the Dublin Fringe Festival, 14th - 17th September 2017. The piece is co-authored by Emma Fraser (Twelfth Night, HEROIN, The Game, Nine Crows and Not Another Agency) and Grace Dyas (The Game, HEROIN, The Trailblazery & RTE’s We Need to Talk About Ireland). The piece is grounded in the artistic intention to attempt to collect, represent and make visible every story, every experience of those 163,514 women.

THEATREclub was founded in 2008 by Shane Byrne, Doireann Coady and Grace Dyas. THEATREclub are Shane Byrne, Doireann Coady, Gemma Collins, Grace Dyas, Barry O'Connor and Eoin Winning.
