Lives Under the Radar

under the radar

Derry City and Strabane District Council Good Relations programme in association with The Playhouse Community Relations outreach initiative have developed a compelling production, which comes in the form of a dramatic reading, is the result of many testimonies and truths that have been sourced from members and supporters of the LGBT community in and around the Strabane area. The script itself, developed by LGBT writer and activist Hilary McCollum, is a unified gathering of tales of struggle and pride, often against the shadow of the Troubles and the rule of the gun.

The project will culminate in a performance of 'Lives Under the Radar' at The Alley Theatre, Strabane on Saturday 13th February 2016 at 8pm.
