The play tells the story of a young Dublin woman’s journey to find her natural mother. She enlists the help of a shambolic private detective whose irreverent humour and hard-drinking lifestyle mask a deep understanding of human frailty. Parallel to her quest is the heart-breaking personal story of her mother’s upbringing by nuns in a 1940s Industrial school and the harsh facts surrounding the enforced adoption of her newborn baby. ‘Stolen Child’ was acclaimed as an important and ground-breaking new play when first presented by Calypso Productions in 2002. It was one of the first works to explore the secret history of Ireland’s Industrial schools.

This is a moving, sad and brilliant play.
