Overview

Playwright and author Honor Molloy (Crackskull Row, Smarty Girl) presents her latest work to the public as the next step in its development process: a workshop reading by a cast of five women. With stories as timeless as Ireland’s oldest sacred sites, Round Room takes place in Dublin’s Rotunda Maternity Hospital, a way station for handywomen and harlots, a fishmonger, lamp tender, and airline hostess. Those eternally present, those forever-dead. All caught in the great sweep of time.

Directed by Kira Simring, artistic director of Nancy Manocherian’s the cell theatre, this reading is the next step in the play’s developmental process.
