Ireland. 2018. Abortion is still illegal, another pregnant girl dies and Maia is forced into action. Maia impregnates herself intentionally to demand a legal abortion from the Irish government to set a precedence for abortion to be legalised. Hear a story that could divide a nation, win or lose a vote, and make history.

This multi-award nominated, five star play challenges the choices we are given, uproots the lies and the legacies we inherit, and boldly protests for the power of the individual.
