This weekend sees Bring me Back Alive coming to Ringsend.

Written by Patricia McCann, the play is set in a Dublin youth centre and focuses on suicide awareness.

Presented and sponsored by Ringsend and District Response to Drugs in partnership with Ringsend Community Services Forum, the play will be showing in Clanna Gael this Friday at 7pm.

Everyone can benefit from seeing Bring me Back Alive, as Norah Byrne, Polydrug and Alcohol Worker with Canal Communities Drug Task Force explained: “This play on suicide awareness has received standing ovations in all venues played so far. You will be amazed and delighted at the depth of sensitivity, understanding and empathy portrayed. Not only for those who are suicidal but for everyone who is also impacted, including friends, family and the community. This play will no doubt help you find some of the answers you are looking for. You will be brought on a journey of healing and understanding through laughter, tears and a sense of connection with each of the character’s portrayed. The use of humor throughout the play is superb.”

The cost of entry is a donation of €5, but some free seats are available for those in financial hardship. Contact Mary or Suzanne on (01) 667 7666 to book your place!
