Overview

A darkly comic play about class, poverty and the struggle to escape by award-winning playwright Kat Woods.

Killymuck is a fictitious housing estate built on a paupers’ graveyard in 1970s Ireland. Inspired by real events, Kat Woods’ play sees Niamh navigate the trials and tribulations of being a kid from the benefit class system. Educational barriers, lack of opportunity and the oppressive structures that are implicit in the cycle of impoverishment, all seem to conspire against the will to abdicate the media constructed underclass stereotype.

Killymuck premiered at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
