About the play

Anna (16) is spending mid-term break with Grandad, who lives alone in the East Wall in Dublin. But Anna is having real problems. Her parents are not getting on and she is being secretly bullied. Sinister texts, fake invites and nasty online images are making her life hell.

Grandad too is not having it easy. The gas company are about to cut him off. His bank is bouncing payments. And he can’t get answers to any of his questions.

BULLIED is a cross-generational play with two people, 50 years apart in age, facing up to, and finally challenging the online and secret world of cyber communication

About the play

When Mona, the eldest daughter, discovers a family secret and confronts her terminally-ill father who’s living in a hospice, he, after repeatedly denying any knowledge of the reality, finally admits to the painful truth. The ensuing battle of wits yields a powerful exploration of the trauma that can surface when life is drawing towards its final scene.
