"Taking conventional notions of theatre and its audience and shoving them back in our faces, with a few expletives thrown in." – The Irish Independent

Composed with passion, anger and care, this one-woman show is a transformatiive journey through the soundscapes of grief.  I'm Not Here is many things: it's a ceremony, a rite, a virgil.  Creator and performance Doireann Coady will lead you into darkness and back out again, and it's an experience you won't soon forgot.  

Doireann Coady is here and she wants to check a few things are working. She’ll sing a couple of songs, recite a couple of poems and maybe tell a few stories. She'll sing a duet with her brother.

He’s not here. He’s dead.

She’s here. You’re here. Thanks very much for being here.

If you’re concerned about anything that’s happening on stage, listen to the sound of her voice.

In her debut as author, Coady sets off in her new show, to stage an unstageable, impossible and beautiful act.
