"The worst slums in Europe. That's where Dublin came from. Out of the shit and into the world."

Life long Dublin docker Patrick has passed away surrounded by his beloved wife Esther, his son and grandchildren. As they remember his life, Esther recounts a tale they are yet to hear. In Our Veins follows their family through 100 years of Dublin, from the notorious madams of the Monto to love in the dark tenements. This is the story of a Dublin City that no longer exists, where it came from and the people that helped build it.


Multi-rolling is a key aspect of this play; no one character is set in stone and variation is demanded within each role. The play is set in Dublin and we would love to experiment with accents. If you feel comfortable attempting an Irish accent, please go for it! However, this is by no means essential, and we will be considering multiple factors in our casting. If you audition with an Irish accent, we would also like to hear you read the extract in your natural voice. (Ignore all of this if you already have an Irish accent!)

Auditions will be held IN PERSON in the LARKUM STUDIO on Thursday 16th June, Friday 17th June and Monday 20th June. Please use this link to book in a slot:

Alternatively, email a self-tape to Orla Hogan (Director) at by 11PM on MONDAY 20TH JUNE. Please do get in touch if you have any access issues so that we can adjust accordingly.

Contact Orla Hogan before 26th Jun 2022 01:00 for more details.
