The Play

Stolen Child is a humorous and moving story of a woman adopted at birth who enlists the help of a colourful private detective to search for her “ birth “ mother. Her search takes us all on a fascinating journey as she uncovers the secrets of her family history and a fascinating exploration of one of the darkest chapters in the history of modern Ireland. Set in 1990 Stolen Child is a beautifully written Play that will make you laugh and cry and stay in your memory long after you leave the theatre.
