TWO WOMEN. A CENTURY APART. SAME STORY.
“I See You” is an insight into the life of Limerick-born Lady Mary Heath, first female commercial pilot and all round trailblazer. Her untold story sank into the walls of history, where she remains to this day.
Set against the backdrop of Modern Mary’s story – pregnant in an abusive relationship.
An immersive and female-led piece of theatre, which breaks the fourth wall. In fact, the only wall in this show is the one between them, encouraging these characters to become creative with their means of communication.
“I See You” explores how if women’s stories continue to go untold and unacknowledged, we will have no role models, and therefore repeat cycles of inequity, inhibiting our ability to evolve and move forward as powerful women in today’s society.

Funding is essential to get this project on its feet. There are always risks with a theatre production and managing the cast and crew's availability on such a small budget. But we are confident that we're curating a committed team of people, who are passionate about this project.
I produced six different one woman shows and toured them internationally from 2011 to 2016.
"I See You" is an ambitious project and needs a strong team of people behind it. In order to get the best people for the job, there needs to be payment offered.
This is an important time for women and we cannot allow for another forgotten woman's story to fade into the walls of history. By funding this project, you will be able to take back the power and allow these amazing women's stories be heard!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS!!!
I am SO proud of the "I See You" script and cannot wait to produce this exciting new female led piece of theatre.
