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 email@example.com.
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 everyone is advance for their understanding and support, and continue to ask for everyone to look after themselves and each other.
Following on from its critically acclaimed sell out run last year, Little Willow Productions is proud to return with ‘Ruby!’ a play written by Michael Cameron and featuring Libby Smyth as Ruby Murray.
Belfast born Ruby Murray was one of the most popular singing stars in the world in the 1950s, becoming the only recording artist in history to have five songs in the Top Twenty in the same week. Behind the triumphs however, a darker story was unfolding in Ruby’s life. This intimate drama enthralled audiences on its debut run. Please note the play contains strong language and adult themes.
“An honourable, concise, elegant and gut-wrenching portrayal of a beloved and seminal artist…this Ruby! is a gem.” The Big List
“A tragic life but an excellent evening's theatre.” The Irish News
“The audience is on its feet. Beautiful story, beautifully acted. Highly recommended.” CultureCrush NITickets £15
