Dirty Laundry

By Wallis Hamilton Felton


“But what if it’s wrong father? What if it’s all wrong?”

One woman. One confession box. A lifetime of untold truths. Follow No Name  as she recounts her harrowing experiences whilst in the “care” of the Magdalene Laundry. After having her youth cut short, she is forced to endure immeasurable physical and emotional hardship in order to survive. But as she faces one impossible choice after another, she carves a path for herself that no-one least of all herself, expected.

Audience members should be advised that Dirty Laundry contains themes that may be upsetting to some viewers, including sexual assault and violence.

What an outstanding performance by Wallis Hamilton Felton.


I had heard of the Magdalen Laundries, but hadn’t realised the immense cruelty and humiliation suffered. So moving.


Cruel. Shocking. Very moving indeed.


So moving and poignant.


Well done!
