The Courtyard Theatre, Central

The idea behind this play comes from the recent exposure by local historian Catherine Cortess of the discovery of babies bones and skeletons found in the grounds of a mother and baby home in Tuam – County Galway – Ireland. The home was built on the grounds of an old workhouse and ran from 1921-1961.

The play is loosely  based on these recent and historical events but is not a docu-drama of Tuam’s buried babies, though it draws inspiration from the story.

Told through the eyes of Grace and her grandchildren, ‘Bones’ is a play about loss, the punishment of unmarried mothers and the legacy of demonisation of women by Church and State, where the human and reproductive rights of women are undermined.
