book it

Devised and Directed by Robert Rae.

Music by Tommy Sands.

A new piece of verbatim theatre.

Victims and survivors wrestle with the complexity of how and what to tell the next generation … their individual rights set against the refusal of those responsible and government bodies to share the truth … and the impact upon their own lives of the events they endured.

Ordinary people who lived through the tragedies in South Armagh, Border Counties and Dublin share their stories.

BAFTA winning film and theatre maker Robert Rae collaborates with those impacted by conflict, horror and loss in the darkest days of The Troubles to develop a remarkable piece of contemporary theatre.
