Stripped Bare is a powerful comedy-drama about one woman’s struggle to cope with everything post-boom Ireland can throw at her. Not only does she survive against all the odds, she positively blooms.
Alice Devine is your mother, your sister, your daughter, your friend – and she’s you. She is Ireland’s Every-woman, a Shirley Valentine for the age.
Anything that can go wrong for her, does. She loses her husband, her children, her life’s savings, her home, her self-respect – everything.
But Alice has a secret. She discovers that when you lose it all, you sometimes find yourself. And when you reach the bottom, the only way out is up.
“Alice Devine tells everybody’s story, in a humorous and heart-warming way. There is nothing as up-to-the-minute as this anywhere. We are lucky to be seeing this play for the first time. It is something to tell the grandchildren” ….. Economist David McWilliams
