Last Chance to see Lislea ahead of All-Ireland Final!

April 6, 2010

Multi award winning Lislea Dramatic Players are giving patrons another chance to see their production of Brian Friel’s ‘Freedom of the City’ on Saturday 10th April at  8pm in The Old School House Theatre in Lislea before the group contest the All-Ireland Confined Drama Finals in Glenamaddy, Co. Galway.

‘Freedom of the City’ under the direction of Kerry Rooney has won countless awards in Ulster; they have won the Premier awards in Castleblayney, Portadown, Strabane and in their own festival in Lislea.  They have received numerous acting, production, technical and staging awards also.

This play is Brian Friel’s dramatic response to the horrific events of Bloody Sunday in 1972. ‘Freedom of the City’ is set two years earlier in 1970 and it tells the story of three Derry residents who in advertently find themselves seeking sanctuary in the city’s Guildhall while fleeing from the madness and the violence which erupts in the wake of a banned Civil Rights March.  The situation quickly spirals out of control when reports and rumours spread of armed occupation motion which leads almost inevitably toward Friel’s magnificently tragic end.

Patrons are advised to come early to avoid disappointment as a packed house is expected. This is one play not to be missed!

Curtain up at 8pm sharp. Tickets are on sale nightly at the Old School House Theatre Box Office from 7-8 pm. Nightly Admission £6 Children £3 General Enquiries Tel 028 30838565 See Press/Website for further details.
