How far would you go for a cause you believed in?

 

Ireland, 2018. Abortion is illegal. Another underage pregnant girl dies. Doctor’s receptionist Maia, impregnates herself intentionally to stage a public protest for legalisation. But as the nation divides and press attention surrounding her intensifies, can she protect her loved ones from being caught in the crossfire? 

 

A new play by multi-award nominated Irish writer and performer Laura Wyatt O’Keeffe, Vessel is a challenging reminder of the lies and legacies we inherit and the potential power of the individual in the digital age.
