Bigger Picture Projects presents



Written by Noelle Brown and Michèle Forbes
Performed by Noelle Brown and Bríd Ní Neachtain
Directed by Conor Hanratty

Actor and playwright Noelle Brown was born into a mother and baby’s home in Cork in the 1960s and adopted at eight weeks old. This poignant and humorous story is based on Noelle’s search to uncover her true identity thirty-five years later. Recounted from the perspective of a private investigator, it reveals the marked reticence of the Church and the State to cooperate…

“This is a haunting retrospective that makes you question the family history written on your face and buried in your genes.” (**** Irish Theatre Magazine)

“A gentle, sad, funny delight.” (Sunday Independent)

“Brown plays herself with admirable, theatrical detachment, with Bríd Ní Neachtain turning in a tour-de-force performance.” (Sunday Independent)
