Lady Justice is a work in development that seeks to dramatize the story of the survivors of Symphysiotomy and their ongoing campaign for justice as well as interrogating wider issues of power, knowledge and authority.

It originated from a ten minute performance in December 2015 as part of a practice-as-research project investigating the ‘representation of the real’ in documentary theatre. The original performance ‘Walking on Thorns’ used a multi-media documentary theatre format and incorporated elements of video, projection, shadow puppetry, masks and movement. It relied heavily on primary source material and included audio testimony from survivors.

Survivors of Symphysiotomy #SOS is the largest advocacy and support group in Ireland for women who underwent the procedure. Information about them can be found here
