Two women. A Century Apart. Same Story.
“I See You” is an insight into the life of Limerick-born Lady Mary Heath, first female commercial pilot and all round trailblazer. Her untold story sank into the walls of history, where she remains to this day.
Set against the backdrop of Modern Mary’s story – one of a middle class Irish woman, who discovers she is pregnant early on in an abusive relationship. Without any options available to her, she is forced to continue with her pregnancy, which inevitably leads to devastating consequences.
Through spoken word and soundscape, the two characters learn to communicate with each other – leading Modern Mary to make the biggest decision of her life.
This is an immersive and female-led piece of theatre, which breaks the fourth wall. In fact, the only wall in this show is the one between them, encouraging these characters to become creative with their means of communication.
“I See You” explores how if women’s stories continue to go untold and unacknowledged, we will have no role models, and therefore repeat cycles of inequity, inhibiting our ability to evolve and move forward as powerful women in today’s society.
