Those You Pass On The Street
Thursday 16th March | 8pm
Culturlann McAdam Ó Fiach
Tickets £8 | Book Online | Phone 028 9024 3343

Those You Pass On The Street, written by Laurence McKeown, explores the complexities of dealing with the legacy of conflict and contrasts party political positioning with individual needs. It challenges the view that any mechanism for dealing with the past is simply about ‘whose side gets what’.

The play follows the story of RUC widow, Elizabeth, and Sinn Fein officer, Frank, whose emerging friendship challenges not only their personal preconceptions and beliefs but also those of their family members and friends. The performance us to think about our own beliefs, political stance, prejudices, and to see other perspectives

The performance will be followed by a facilitated discussion with playwright Laurence McKeown

Cast: Vincent Higgins, Paula McFetridge, Carol Moore and Ciáran Nolan
