Humorous yet moving, ‘Stolen Child’ tells the story of a woman adopted at birth who enlists the help of a colourful private detective to search for her mother and uncover the secrets of her family history. What begins as a personal odyssey for Angela Tiernan, to discover the secrets of her family history, soon becomes a fascinating exploration of one of the darkest chapters in the history of modern Ireland.

About The Group
Brideview Drama formed in 1989 and began competing in both the One-Act and Three-Act Festival Circuit in the early 90’s beginning with ‘The Year of the Hiker’ by J.B.Keane. They went from strength to strength, winning the Confined Three-Act All-Ireland in 2005 with ‘Moonshine’ by Jim Nolan. Competing in the Open Section since 2006 they have won a number of festivals and awards, coming close to qualifying for the All-Ireland Final with ‘Pied a Tierre’ in 2010 and with ‘Same Old Moon’ in 2012.
