Word:Play archiveSix 15-minute plays, from six playwrights: The Right to Choose: Mother wants a baby. Not just any baby. The right baby. The right type. A mother’s right to choose.

The Escape: Three snapshots of three brothers at different stages of their lives. From Greek to Shakespeare to Beckett, an ambitious verse play with a metaphysical slant.

Rose, his daughter, thinks he needs to learn a few lessons about how things have changed in ‘modern Ireland’. The Boys in the Tower: A mother and father struggle to accept the loss of their youngest son. Two interweaving monologues explore grief and memory. November: Every year, the Judd family stand by a motorway shrine. Why do they come and who will dare break the cycle?
