The Train

The Train, by Bill Whelan and Arthur Riordan, is a fictional celebration of actual events surrounding the legendary Contraceptive Train of 1971. Determined to challenge the restrictive laws of the Irish State, a group of 47 trailblazing women take a train to Belfast and return to Dublin with forbidden contraceptives. This watershed moment is joyously captured by Arthur Riordan's sharp wit and Bill Whelan's dynamic score. The Train explores a short journey which marked the beginning of a modern odyssey. An odyssey that is still incredibly relevant today.
