The Abbey is set to stage an adaptation of Louise O’Neill’s novel Asking For It, beginning next week. It made its debut as part of the Cork Midsummer Festival earlier this year to much acclaim, and Dublin audiences can see it for themselves from Friday. Set in a small Cork town, the play deals with a young woman’s experience following an act of violence committed against her and relates the community’s response to it. It runs until November 24, with tickets priced between €13 and €45. You can book at abbeytheatre.ie.
