Living Quarters By Brian Friel Saturday 11th August 2018 @ 8.00 PM in The Playhouse Theatre & Arts Centre

It's a family drama concerning an Irish commandant who returns home to Donegal a hero after a successful UN mission in the Middle East and it explores those quintessentially Chekhovian themes of conflict and resolution in an unmistakably Irish context. It's set twenty miles outside Derry and the first of our rehearsed readings takes place in Letterkenny. Derry~Londonderry and Omagh, where the other two readings are happening, are referenced in the play, the characters passing through them on their way to Friel's imaginary Ballybeg.
Music has always been a powerful element in Brian Friel's drama and the Middle-Eastern connection in Living Quarters is celebrated with a prereading performance by Sufi musicians from Turkey and Iran, Coskun Karademir Quartet.
