Thrilling Times At Íontas Theatre

March 2, 2010

The renowned Portstewart-based Big Telly Theatre Company will perform its new play, The Haunting Of Helena Blunden, at Íontas Theatre Castleblayney on Tuesday 23rd March at 8.30pm.

If you like thrillers, this is the drama for you.  Transport yourself to a doorway, a stairwell in the doorway and finally to a story of two women – one desperate to cross over the threshold – the other desperate to escape.

What is it on the other side that makes eighty-year-old Maggie want so badly to go in?  And what is it that has terrified Susan into packing up and leaving?  Why does the story of the mysterious Helena Blunden still hold them both there?

This drama is thriller, ghost story, musical all in one.  Set in modern Belfast in a converted linen mill it has more twists and turns than the yarn winding its way round the spindle. Just when you think it’s time to relax, sit back and breathe easy, the breath is knocked right out of you.  Be very afraid!

The Haunting Of Helena Blunden is written by Paul Boyd and Bernie Mc Gill and is directed by the highly regarded Zoe Seaton while Big Telly Theatre Company has luminary patrons that include Frank McGuinness, James Nesbitt and Fiona Shaw.
