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


Ireland. 2018. Abortion is still illegal, another pregnant girl dies and Maia is forced into action. Hear a story that could divide a nation, win or lose a vote, and make history.

This multi-award nominated, five star play challenges the choices we are given, uproots the lies and the legacies we inherit, and boldly protests for the power of the individual.
