REVIEWS OF POSTSCRIPT (full performance)

 “A moving story stoically enacted by Brown and Bríd Ní Neachtain, who beautifully brings to life the letters that form the linchpin of Brown’s journey…..powerful piece of work. **** The Irish Times

“A gentle, sad, funny delight”.  Sunday Independent

 

 ‘From a very early age I was told I was adopted. In fairness I think my parents had no choice but to tell me, what with me being redheaded with pale skin in a family with dark skin and dark hair – this made it pretty obvious that something wasn’t right. While I loved being able to say I was adopted when I was a child (because it made me feel exotic), I also learned that it was a word that was used by adults with a dropped voice.  ‘Bad blood will out’ was a phrase that was often thrown around in conversation in relation to adopted children in 70’s Ireland.’

 

This event will include a performance by Noelle Brown of selected excerpts from the full production, followed by a Q&A with the writer and performer.
