OVERVIEW

    Grace Dyas 

  • Notes

    Commissioned by the TreeLine Project. 

  • Synopsis

    Tina and Bernadette, are digging a hole in the ground. They dig everyday, methodically, looking for what has been hidden from them. They are Magdalene Ghosts. They heard about Tuam on the radio. One of them is digging to find her baby’s bones, the other is digging to expose the truth. Should they keep digging? Or is it better to leave the truth under the ground, where it belongs? After all, people who dig to find out what’s buried aren’t treated very well in this country, risking legal action, and the ruination of their good name. So why keep going?
