A Thing I Cannot Name looks at female desire from the point of view of three women at different life stages. Set in a rented flat on a busy Dublin street in different years, the libretto by writer and journalist Megan Nolan explores sexual desire, desire for another woman’s life, and the desire for motherhood. The three women are played by Kelli-Ann Masterson, Rachel Goode and Aebh Kelly.


The opera is sung in English with English subtitles, it is suitable for ages 14+ and the duration is 20 minutes.
