Marina Carr‘s iGirl at the Abbey Theatre until 30 October 2021.
iGirl is an intimate exploration of our search for meaning in history, myth and the stories human beings have told themselves since the beginning of time.
In her first production as Abbey Theatre Artistic Director, Caitríona McLaughlin reunites with Marina Carr for the world premiere of iGirl.
Lone performer Olwen Fouéré (The Mai, By The Bog of Cats, Woman and Scarecrow) brings to life archetypal figures like Oedipus, Joscasta, Joan of Arc, Demeter, and our ancient human ancestors in an attempt to bring meaning to her own existence.
At once deeply individual and strikingly universal, iGirl is both a warning about our darkest inclinations and a celebration of human beings’ capacity for love and creativity.
