In Our Veins

Lee Coffey

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Lee Coffey's In Our Veins is a love letter to Dublin in all of its complex, messy and contradictory beauty. In tracing the heritage of one gregarious family, it simultaneously explores nearly 100 years of complicated Irish history.

Life long Dublin docker Patrick has passed away surrounded by his beloved wife Esther, his son and his grandchildren. As his children and wife remember his life, new and old stories of his past are exposed.

The troubling but often time hilarious play depicted the harsh and often unpleasant madams of the Monto as well as navigating love in a dark and destabilised post-war world. The play examines the origins of Dublin City, both the good and the bad, and how the environment developed into a bustling and vibrant city.

This production is recommended for ages 15 and above.

This amateur production is presented by an arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
