The Linen Room

‘The Linen Room’ (Abbey 5×5 2020) Peacock Theatre, 21 February 2020, was performed with ten residents from the Grand Hotel Direct Provision Centre, Wicklow Town, and actor, Kevin Olohan and co-directed with Seamus Quinn. Set in the laundry room, where a local handyman adjusts the machines and his prejudices as each resident enters in search of a free machine and the challenges of sharing your home with strangers who become family.
