Maz and Bricks by Eva O'Connor (Playwright, Ireland)
I like you, you know that? I know we've only just met, but you're my favourite abortionist. Maz and Bricks is a passionate, angry, funny and touching play which tells the story of two young people who meet over the course of a day in Dublin. Maz is attending a `Repeal the Eighth' demonstration, while Bricks is going to meet the mother of his young daughter. As the day unfolds, the two become unlikely friends, changing each other in ways they never thought possible. Maz and Bricks delves deep into the issue of reproductive rights in Ireland to ask what does it mean to be alive in Ireland today and what really makes it all worthwhile? Maz and Bricks was published to coincide with the premiere production and tour by Olivier Award-winning Fishamble: The New Play Company in April 2017.
