'I changed the world, just so you know.’

It’s June 2018. A post-Repeal world. Dawn no longer has to walk for miles knocking on doors, she just has to walk to Santiago. No one said it was easy but neither did anyone say that your toes might explode, which would’ve been nice to know. Written and performed by Miriam Needham and directed by Donal O'Kelly, this darkly funny solo show uses physical theatre storytelling and magical realism to explore activist burnout, loneliness, and disconnection.

Join the Compostela team for a post-show Q&A on art and activism after the Thursday 12th September show.
