Why Shouldn’t I Go? By Janet Behan
October 8, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$8
Writer/actor Janet Behan, author of the celebrated biographical Brendan at the Chelsea, brings her funny and poignant triple bill to Wordfest 2019.
The plays tell the stories of three very different Irishwomen. They have one thing in common - religion and the impact it has had on their lives. Janet says, “Each woman started out as hopeful, bright-eyed and brave but each of them had their youthful optimism blighted by the prevailing constraints in their different communities.
These are women of my generation, living every day with their own particular pain and loss.” This premiere production is directed by Jessica Higgs
