Jan 8th - Feb 3rd, 2024

At 1pm

A story of how the wisdom of age and the courage of the young can face adversary and triumph.

With a SOIRÉE PERFORMANCE at 7pm on Thursday, Jan 18th, 2023


BEWLEY’S CAFÉ THEATRE is proud to present…


by Michael J. Harnett

Anna (16) is spending mid-term break with Grandad, who lives alone in the East Wall in Dublin. But Anna is having real problems. Her parents are not getting on and she is being secretly bullied. Sinister texts, fake invites and nasty online images are making her life hell.

Grandad too is not having it easy. The gas company are about to cut him off. His bank is bouncing payments. And he can’t get answers to any of his questions.


BULLIED is a cross-generational play with two people, fifty years apart, facing up to and challenging the confusing and hidden world of cyber communication.


Starring IFTA nominated Vinnie McCabe and newcomer Shauna

Brennan, BULLIED is above all, a drama of hope, the story of how the wisdom of age and the courage of the young can face adversary and triumph.
