Inspired by true events, Stronger tells the gripping story of Jan, a teacher who is sexually assaulted by her student. As Jan journeys through the legal system, she struggles to find closure and her life is in danger of falling apart. A glimmer of hope appears but it could mean lying to the person she loves the most and confronting the person who has done her most harm.

Award-winning theatre company Gúna Nua presents a tense new drama that deals with the emerging practice of Restorative Justice and the very human stories that it serves.

Tickets are sold using pod seating of predetermined sizes.
