After its world premiere this summer the critically-acclaimed stage adaptation of Louise O'Neill's Asking for It - a Landmark Productions and Everyman co-production in association with the Abbey Theatre and Cork Midsummer Festival –  plays at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin from 9 - 24 November. Find out more by visiting the Abbey website here.

A new stage adaptation of Louise O’Neill’s devastating novel, which shines an unflinching light on the experience of a young woman whose life is changed for ever by a horrific act of violence. One night in a small town in Co. Cork, where everyone knows everyone, things spiral terrifyingly out of control. What will happen now? – to Emma? To her family? To the others?

Adapted for the stage by Meadhbh McHugh in a collaboration with Annabelle Comyn, who also directs, the play will have its world premiere at the Everyman as part of Cork Midsummer Festival 2018.
