Exclusive: In Our Veins | Full Performance | Online Premiere
On Monday, June 8th you can watch In Our Veins, a play by Lee Coffey, online for the first time and for one week only on Dublin Port Company’s YouTube channel.
Filmed on the Peacock Stage during a sold out run at the Abbey Theatre in April 2019, In Our Veins tells the story of life long Dublin docker Patrick, who has passed away surrounded by his beloved wife Esther, his son and his grandchildren. As they remember his life, Esther recounts a tale they are yet to hear. The play follows their family through 100 years of Dublin, a Dublin City that no longer exists, where it came from and the people that helped build it.
Produced by Bitter Like A Lemon and the Abbey Theatre, Dublin Port Company commissioned In Our Veins as part of the Port Perspectives programme, which allows artists to respond to the built environment, local areas, history and context of the city’s port.
