Description

'Why do you break our bones when God sculpted them with love?' Unveiled explores the physical, sexual and emotional abuse experienced by countless Irish women at the hands of the religiously run Magdalene Laundries. Teresa – arriving with nothing more than a suitcase – toils under the oppressive regime of Mother Ignatius until she has no option but to fight for survival. Unveiled is a debut show written and performed by the award-winning Irish actress Ceara Dorman, with an original score written and performed by composer Ben Ramsden and Anna Bradley-Scott.

After seeing too many comedies, we searched the mile for a flyerer offering an intense play. We were promised a horrifying account of a sickening part of history. That is exactly what we got. The actress exceptionally portrayed multiple roles accompanied by a wonderful musical duo (Piano, Violin and voice). All elements of this play came together so nicely and we left the auditorium feeling thouroughly educated and humbled. A real eye opener. It was obvious the actress had a deep connection with the importance of this piece and after speaking to her at the end, we left feeling inspired.

You were amazing, the most memorable event of my Fringe so far.
