  • Audio Description
  • Open Captioning
  • Relaxed Performance

Equinox Theatre Company presents The M House, a play for anyone who’s ever been put in a box.

My name is Marcie. I’ve been here for ten years, three months and two days. Here all our names begin with M. There’s Max, Melissa, Mary, Mark, Michael and Malcolm. This is the M house. There’s also an A house, a B house, a C house, a D house…. you get the picture.

We’re supposed to sit and watch TV all the time but we have other ideas…

and we’ve got questions…lots of questions.

The M House is an adventure story.
It’s a satirical look at the legacy of institutional Ireland.
It’s a scramble to make sense of our one-size-fits-all culture.
It’s a parable of our times about the treatment of our vulnerable.

Everyone is welcome regardless of what letter your name begins with.

Equinox Theatre Company is part of KCAT Arts Centre, Kilkenny who have been pioneering and championing inclusive arts practice for over twenty years.
