Never Going to Beat You

by Gypsy & Traveller Women's Project

Friday 22 July 2016 - Saturday 23 July 2016

It’s 1995 and Moira Le Bas has been swept off her feet by the charming Patrick Murphy who has come back to the area after several years away.
Within a year Moira has left school and is starting a new life as Patrick’s wife. She is having the time of her life but her cousin Bridy has some deep concerns about Patrick.
Twenty years later, it seems that Bridy was right. Moira wonders if she should’ve realised what Patrick was like when he promised "I’m never going to beat you."

Based on stories of domestic violence experienced by Gypsy and Traveller women as told to Jennie Buckman (Giants Theatre Company), Never Going to Beat You is a raw and personal piece of community drama. With a cast formed of Gypsy and Traveller women alongside actor Paul McGuinness, the play is an authentic look at the realities of domestic violence within these communities.“
