My Son My Son in Development

Veronica Dyas

Mermaid invited artist Veronica Dyas to work for two weeks on the development of her new work My Son My Son. A new play inspired by Bertolt Brecht’s learning play, ‘The Mother’, featuring Lauren Larkin, Amy Conroy, Ericka Roe & Leah Moore. Set on MEATH STREET, they told the story of THE MOTHER. Backwards. In seven year intervals, ending outside LARKIN’S BUTCHERS.

My Son My Son by Veronica Dyas was presented at Project Arts Centre, Mermaid Arts Centre and Axis Arts Centre, Ballymun.
