A live performance taking place over two days will explore the housing crisis through a re-imagining of the Passion of Christ.

The modern-day rendition of the story will be staged across the streets, parks and civic buildings of Ballyfermot and Cherry Orchard, Dublin 10, this Saturday and Sunday.

The performance entitled 'The Passion Project' will feature well-known actors Donal O'Kelly and Roxanna Nic Liam leading a cast of hundreds of local people performing as actors, musicians, dancers and singers.

The audience will become participants as they engage with the story of a young homeless woman who challenges a property developer. 'The Passion Project' has been developed by theatre company Brokentalkers in partnership with Dublin's Culture Connects, Dublin City Council and Ballyfermot Community Civic Centre.
