Based on oral history from psychiatric nurses from around the country, The Bell Room is a performance installation that examines the job of caring as told by those on the frontline.
Upstate Theatre Project, in collaboration with award-winning director Louise Lowe and the community of Ardee, has developed an immersive historical experience exploring health care in 20th Century Ireland. We invite you to our room within a room, to step into another time and place, and to revisit recent history through a soundscape performance by members of the local community.
Let us introduce you to the life of care and caring.
The Bell Room has been conceived to be experienced by one audience member at a time. Therefore, there is only one ticket per performance. Duration 20 minutes
Directed by Louise Lowe
