The Pull of the Stars by Emma Donoghue

Adapted from Emma Donoghue’s own bestselling novel, The Pull of the Stars is set in a Dublin hospital in 1918 during the Spanish Flu pandemic.

It follows three transformative days in the life of Julia Power, a young midwife, assigned to a quarantined women’s ward. An eclectic group of pregnant women, those most affected by the deadly flu, spin the dial of destiny as life and death collide and an unlikely love flourishes.

This beautiful new play asks us to consider the importance of connection, the power of chance and the care we offer to women and their bodies. Its all-female creative team will be led by Louise Lowe who returns to the Gate after her acclaimed, award-winning production of The Steward of Christendom.
