‘Writer Maura Laverty’s life is a fascinating tale of talent and tenacity; she is brought back to life in this charming play full of detail, wit and tragedy.
We are now unfortunately closed to the public until the end of March, so this performance has been postponed. Please keep an eye on our website for updates.
Maura Laverty, the multi-talented broadcaster, cookery expert, agony aunt and controversial writer, who was a household name in Ireland for three decades, is spirited back from the dead to face a live and online audience on a surreal TV show called ‘This WAS Your LIFE.’ She will cook recipes from her iconic cookbook, Full And Plenty, and talk about her rollercoaster life. The host will get her to reveal some of her darker secrets and the price she paid for her success. Fifty years after her death, how will a contemporary audience evaluate her recipes and her tumultuous life?
