“War makes heroes and demons doesn’t it, so how could war in Ireland be any different?”

Told through the prism of two sisters, OUTRAGE is a play that explores the true nature of women’s role in the Irish revolutionary wars and in particular the effect of Civil War on women’s mind, body and soul.

Alice and Nell play key roles in arming revolutionaries, organising civic resistance and in particular the propaganda war.

They are fervent. They are funny. They are human. And they, like everyone else in Ireland, become deeply conflicted as the country spins toward a shattering Civil clash that split the nation and continues to haunt Irish politics, society and culture to this day.

OUTRAGE challenges the historical narrative we have all grown up with.

OUTRAGE is written out of the true testimony of women we have never heard of.

OUTRAGE is a theatrical hurricane of emotion, empathy, action and truth.
