What Would Ma Say
The World Premiere of Kathleen Doyle's stage adaptation of her bestselling memoir of Dublin inner City Tenement life in the 50's and Crumlin in the 60's and the story of her mother who kept food on the table for a family of 12 children...Lil Doyle.
Kathleen Doyle never had a childhood. One of twelve children, she was always 'the big sister', the one her siblings turned to when her mother was working and her father drinking. Born into one room in a tenement house in Dublin before moving to Crumlin, Kathleen grew up in the 1950's and 1960's in an Ireland we wouldn't recognise today. Her mother was the backbone, the one who kept them together as a family, just about keeping their heads above water. But through all the poverty, Kathleen and her brothers and sisters had a laugh.
The book has been described as 'a searing, honest memoir of a working-class life in Dublin...full of wit, humour, insight and honesty' - Joe Duffy.
