In Ireland, we say “go to England” when we talk about that thing we are not supposed to talk about. With the referendum to Repeal the Eighth Amendment on the horizon, a national conversation about reproductive rights has begun.
In a deeply personal and bravely funny testimony, actor, comedian and activist Tara Flynn shares her account of having to travel out of Ireland for an abortion. With searing honesty, Not a Funny Word examines the status quo through one woman’s own journey. With songs.
