A new play exploring violence, healing and the insecure dynamics of youth work in Ireland.

Shaun Dunne presents Restoration

In the wake of a violent outburst by a young person, the staff at a youth service in Dublin are attempting to move on. But healing is hard when you're on the floor and out the door. Healing is hard when your wounds are still raw...

Made in consultation with youth workers from the north inner-city, Restoration is a new play from the award-winning Shaun Dunne (Rapids, Making a Mark) directed by Darren Thornton (A Date for Mad Mary), exploring the politics of restorative practice and youth work in Ireland.

Supported by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Mermaid Arts Centre. Shaun Dunne is part of Six In The Attic, an Irish Theatre Institute artist development programme and is a resident artist at Project Arts Centre.
