WATCH EPISODE ONE OF MAD, BAD & DANGEROUS HERE 

A series of interviews between influential Irish women over 70. These women have been blazing trails for 50 years. They were moving mountains long before hashtags.  

The relationship that intersects age, gender and public space has never been so fraught. The need to see, hear and prioritise older people has been rendered explicitly visible.  

They are the ‘difficult’ women, the brass necks, the sharp, the fearless: the mad, bad and dangerous. Featuring Lelia Doolan and Bernadette McAliskey.

Broadcast online at rte.ie/culture in four parts throughout September and October as part of Dublin Fringe Festival 2020: Pilot Light Edition and Bealtaine At Home — celebrating the arts and creativity as we age.
