The Morning After the Life Before

By Gúna Nua

Gúna Nua presents the internationally acclaimed and multi award winning The Morning After The Life Before, a personal tale of Ireland before and after the Marriage Equality referendum.

May 24th 2015, as 62% of Ireland is #hungoverforequality, Ann gets a text from her brother which brings the reality of a new Ireland into sharp focus.

A heartfelt, true story of weddings, ‘coming out’ and arguments over who takes out the bins, this funny and compelling show celebrates the unique historical moment when Ireland became the first country in the world to legalise same-sex marriage on a national basis by popular vote.

Be prepared for music, cake and equality!
