The idea behind this play comes from the recent exposure by local historian Catherine Cortess of the discovery of babies bones and skeletons found in the grounds of a mother and baby home in Tuam – County Galway – Ireland. The home was built on the grounds of an old workhouse and ran from 1921-1961.

The play is loosely  based on these recent and historical events but is not a docu-drama of Tuam’s buried babies, though it draws inspiration from the story.

Told through the eyes of Grace and her grandchildren, ‘Bones’ is a play about loss, the punishment of unmarried mothers and the legacy of demonisation of women by Church and State, where the human and reproductive rights of women are undermined.
