Yer Only mBan


An Nollaig na mBan night of storytelling, song, comedy and cake in Smock Alley Banquet Hall celebrating the work of women.

It featured performances by The Evertides, Olwen Fouéré, Sonya Kelly, Trival Cahoots, Alison Spittle, Erica Murray, Tom Lane, Louise Melinn, Vickey Curtis, Moria Brady Averill, Sarah Griffin, Maeve Stone, Róise Goan, Dylan Coburn Gray


It was conceived and produced by Dan Colley and Maeve Stone as part of the #WakingTheFeminists movement which exploded in response to the Abbey Theatre’s male-artist-dominated “Waking the Nation” programme, and unearthed hidden truths about the exclusion of female voices across the arts and political spheres.  We produced this as a celebratory response to the crisis and with a new twist on a traditional theme.

All proceeds went to the #WakingTheFeminists campaign
