Centre Stage Theatre Company presents All Souls Night By Joseph Tomelty (1911 - 2011) Saturday 29th October 2011 8pm

It is All Souls' Night when the dead traditionally return to their home hearths. ...

All Souls Night is a powerfully moving drama of greed, superstition and poverty. Premiered in 1948, it has remained a staple of Irish theatre, has been performed across the world and is the play that inspired the late J.B. Keane to take up a pen and write Sive.

Centre Stage Theatre Company is pleased to mount this, the first professional revival for 20 years to celebrate the centenary of Joseph Tomelty's birth.

Set on the shores of Strangford Lough, it deals with the tragic events in the home of John Quinn, an illiterate fisherman, his ambitious son and his miserly wife, whose greed caused the death of their youngest son and will ultimately destroy them..'

Colin Carnegie directs, John Leslie designs, and Roma Tomelty and Gordon Fulton head the usual strong Company of Ulster actors in this not to be missed production of a play universally acclaimed as an Irish Classic.

£11 / £8
