Shadowbox Theatre Company
Mermaid Arts Centre, Wicklow July 2017
Director: Gemma Gallagher
Set Design: Ciaran O’Melia
Performed by an all female ensemble, ‘Somethings’ is based on the Tuam Mother and Baby Home as well a reflection on the women themselves and their right to have children.
As the world itself is a metaphorical one, I designed the costumes to be timeless, but with a 1940s inspired undertone. I sourced all the costumes (apart from the Nun character, created by Jean Poutch) and then broke them down to give them a heavily lived-in appearance.
