Theatre of Witness and The Playhouse presents Release at The Brian Friel Theatre, Belfast Men Coming to Terms with the Legacies of Their Lives During the ‘Troubles’ and Beyond Tuesday 13th November 2012 to Friday 14th September 2012 7.30pm

How can we release ourselves from the prison of the past?

Release, the third original Playhouse, Theatre of Witness production presented in co-operation with Holywell Trust, is performed by men from a variety of backgrounds who are working to coming to terms with the legacies of their past. They share their extraordinary interrelated stories about their lives during the Troubles and beyond.

Theatre of Witness is a unique form of performance created by its founder and artistic director, Teya Sepinuck, in which the stories of those whose voice hasn't been heard in society are performed by the people who have directly experienced the issues being explored. Theatre of Witness puts a face and a heart to societal issues of suffering and transformation.

Booking is essential.
