Resumo

O teatro documentário é um gênero em que fontes e eventos reais são usados e editados para se tornarem a forma de textos dramáticos e performances. As experiências pessoais narradas em No Escape (2010), uma peça documentário de Mary Raftery, chocaram muitas pessoas devido às várias descrições gráficas de abuso infantil que ocorreram em escolas industriais e orfanatos na Irlanda. Este artigo analisa como a dor é apresentada em No Escape, contrastando a linguagem utilizada por autoridades, vítimas e representantes de diferentes instituições, em suas respectivas falas na peça. A dor, como sensação física e psicológica, é um assunto que ainda precisa ser examinado mais detalhadamente em discussões sobre a  história da Irlanda para fornecer aos estudiosos e à sociedade uma oportunidade de refletir sobre este assunto - e, talvez, alcançar a cura.
