An Assembly on Women, Intimidation and Debt in the North Inner City

Grand Social Upstairs Garden, 11.00 – 1.00 Friday 23rd June

The Complex, Dublin City Council and the Abbey Theatre are holding a scratch performance to kick start a long term project exploring the damage done by the black economy on female lives in modern Ireland. Building on the Complex’s north side connections with community groups and the Abbey Theatre’s two previous Assemblies on activism we will spend a morning using personal experience, debate, passion and creativity to deepen our understanding of this issue and ask these questions…

What is it?
What it’s like to be part of it?
What it’s like for the children?
Who does it?
Where else does it happen?
What can we do?

FREE entry, but reservations needed for parties of over 10 to or phone 01-5446922
