A personal history of Ireland, in song, drama and images.
Told simply and directly by musicians, actors and narrators in short scenes with live music, this is a broad history of Ireland from the 1800's to the present day by author, song writer and singer Peter Sinclair. Peter was brought up and schooled in Dublin during the 1950's and 60's, so he's seen and heard a lot of Ireland's history in person and through the words of his forebears.
Peppered with Irish wit and humour, and featuring Peter's own songs as well as some favourites from the Emerald Isle, this is a celebration of the Irish journey
Performances start at 7.45pm

Be My Baby
By Amanda Whittington
27 September - 2 October 2016
The sixties are so much associated with sexual freedom, it's easy to forget the unmarried mothers whose babies were born in Church-sponsored homes and taken from them for adoption.
It's 1964, and Mary is young, single and pregnant when she is bundled off to St. Saviour's by her mother to have her baby in secret to keep up appearances. The girls there find comfort in each other's friendship, helped by the uplifting sounds of current pop songs, but ultimately they must face their individual tragedies alone.
A GCSE set text, this is theatre with a big heart where loss, pain and laughter run side by side.
