Mainstream by Rosaleen McDonagh
Published by Bloomsbury Methuen Drama, 2016
We share a history, we share a memory and they both share my heart.
It’s that time of the year. A time that Eoin, Mary Anne and Jack all remember.
They have all agreed to take part in a documentary.
They have all lied to each other about what they are going to say on camera.
A play by Rosaleen McDonagh about truth, lies and the mainstreaming of Travellers with disabilities.
‘Mainstream is hugely ambitious…almost Shavian in its dialectic complexity…Mainstream crawl[s] into your soul: its anger stabs deep into the audience, and makes for a harrowing, deeply affecting 85 minutes’
