The Playhouse Theatre and Peacebuilding Academy presents ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN 1972: Voices from the Heart of The Troubles by Damian Gorman Wednesday 22nd April 2020 to Saturday 25th April 2020 8pm

As the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) continues our building will remain closed to the public until Monday 18th May. Our Programme of events here at The Playhouse during that time will now be cancelled. We will seek to reschedule as many of these events as possible in the coming months.

This is not a decision we take lightly, but the health of our audiences, service users and our staff is our upmost priority, and should remain so during such difficult times.

We will continue to monitor the situation and follow advice on the way forward for the rest of our Spring programme after Monday 18th May.

Our staff will continue to work remotely and we can still be reached at info@derryplayhouse.co.uk.

Our box office has been in touch with patrons who have already booked for shows to offer a refund or notify them of alternative dates as soon as they become available.

We know that many of our audiences are incredibly committed to what we do as an organisation, and will want to show us support in this challenging time. There are some patrons who have decided not to take a refund, in which case this money will go directly to our work delivering arts in the community.

We thank eveyone is advance for their understanding and support, and continue to ask for everyone to look after themselves and each other.

The statistics for 1972- the worst year of the ‘Troubles’- are astonishing: almost 500 killings (nearly 100 in the month of July alone); 10,000 shootings, 2,000 explosions, and almost 5,000 people physically injured.

But statistics only take you so far, and they don’t take you inside the hearts of people who were there. 1972 was an extraordinary year- a year when it felt like anything could happen- but it was a year of lives as well as deaths. And here is an evening of voice, of people- gathered by the poet Damian Gorman- which carries inside stories of both.
