Vessel by Laura Wyatt O'Keeffe

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.


“Vessel is both poignant and subtle. The minimal set and direction make way for excellent writing to shine.” – The List


“Vessel has tender and understated comedy in just the right places.” – Theatre Weekly Edinburgh


“Vessel is a powerful, thought-provoking drama that will stay with you long after you leave the theatre.” – The Wee Review


Running time: 70 minutes – no interval
