Theatre: In the Shadow of Gullion [FREE]


Presented by The Playhouse Theatre and Peacebuilding Academy.
by Laurence McKeown

Survival and retaining dignity in the face of adversity…

A live multi-media event exploring the landscape of South Armagh through the eyes of seven victims/survivors of The Troubles.

Through the prism of the personal stories of individuals severely impacted by the conflict in the South Armagh and Border Counties region, In the Shadow of Gullion uses film, sound, theatre, music, song, and narration to foreground South Armagh as an area of natural beauty, rich in folklore, culture, and tradition. This understanding and presentation is interwoven with an exploration of the region as a place that has been besieged by strife and conflict over many centuries.

Renowned playwright, scriptwriter and filmmaker Laurence McKeown presents a brand new work that does not interrogate the rights and wrongs of each shared story, but explores the different perspectives of those involved, and the legacy for individuals today.

This production is the latest by The Playhouse Theatre Peace Building Academy, a cross border arts programme that gives creative expression to the experience of living in Northern Ireland and memory of The Troubles.
