In one of Ireland’s Magdalene Laundries or Magdalene asylums, The Woman In The Wall will take place. First, some background on the horrifying Magdalene Laundries: these nun-run institutions housed women who had fallen out of social order due to “adultery or teenage pregnancies” from the 18th century through the late 20th century.

The ladies were well known to be subjected to physical and psychological torture and forced labor while there. It is estimated that at least 10,000 women were detained in these facilities over two centuries.
