The Playhouse Theatre and Peacebuilding Academy presents Blood Red Lines by Robert Rae At Newry Town Hall Saturday 23rd February 2019 to Sunday 24th February 2019 7pm

Stories shared in the pub, heard by a new generation worried about the future…

The growing anxiety in border communities about the effect Brexit will have on peace…

The fight for justice, for the truth…

BAFTA winning film and theatre maker Robert Rae gives a new voice to the tragedies that occurred in the South Armagh and Border counties in the darkest days of The Conflict.

This contemporary piece of theatre is created in collaboration with people with direct lived experience of conflict, horror and loss. In it, survivors and former combatants wrestle with the complexity of how and what to tell the next generation, their individual rights set against the refusal of the state to share the truth … and the impact upon their own lives of the events they endured.
