Lily is 23, young, free and single and waiting for her life to start, but she’s hit a bump. Bump is a tale of some of the awkward encounters and nauseating moments that make up a girl’s life. Meet Lily and hear her story as she confronts her choices in the waiting room of an abortion clinic. Bump is a visceral and fast paced one-woman show exploring the journey of childhood to womanhood. 
Bump is co-devised by Rosa Bowden (Two-time winner of the ISDA for Best Director in 2015 & 2016, former UCD Ad Astra Performing Arts Scholar.), Rosa Torr (trained with Fourth Monkey Theatre Company London for a year in workshops and repertory performances in both London and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, former UCD Ad Astra Performing Arts Scholar) and Cathal Sheerin (directing credits include: On Raftery’s Hill by Marina Carr, The Cordelia Dream by Marina Carr, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men (adapted by Cathal for the stage from a short story). Cathal held the position of treasurer of UCD Dramsoc in its 89th Session and is part of the Abbey Theatre Front of House team.).
