Heroin at Garter Lane

For the first time, the incredible THEATREclub comes to Waterford with their award-winning production of Heroin by Grace Dyas for one night only on Friday 6th February at 8pm.

Heroin was developed in collaboration with the staff and clients of Rialto Community Drug Team and the book “Dying to Survive” by Rachel Keogh is read from during the performance. THEATREclub’s award winning show is an explosion of the social history of Heroin in Ireland over the last forty years. Heroin is a radical staging of how we got here, and how much we care. It is the story you were never told about the new republic, of the person you never saw, of what you built and then demolished. It’s the big one, the bad one, the one you never thought you’d try. It’s everything that ever happened to us, the words that were never spoken and how the ones we voted for, kicked us in the teeth.

Created in 2010, Heroin has toured around Ireland & Europe and now it’s coming to you. Director, Grace Dyas will be working in Waterford before the show to ‘Design the Audience’ for the production. Get in touch on info@theatreclub.ie if you have a group who you would like to bring, Grace can arrange a visit and a workshop. Generously Supported by South East Regional Drugs Task Force, the show is 16+ or accompanied by a parent or group leader.

The show at Garter Lane will include a performance from Waterford’s High Hopes Choir.
