The Playhouse presents The Wood of The Crows By Stan McGowan Thursday 17th May 2012 to Friday 18th May 2012 8pm

At the Millennium Forum

The Playhouse is pleased to present the triumphant return of Stan McGowan's highly acclaimed sell out show, which tells the moving story of the death of the young and beautiful Prehen House estate heiress, Miss Mary Ann Knox, who died by the hand of her much older lover, Mr John McNaghten.

Was the fatal shot that killed her and accident, or an act of deliberate intent in order to seek revenge from her overprotective father, whose opposition to their marriage would lead to this most tragic drama?

The story has engrained itself, down through the centuries, into the consciousness of the North West, was brought to the stage for the first time at The Playhouse to great acclaim.

Set against the background of Ascendency Londonderry two hundred and fifty years ago, this stunning production is a perceptive portrayal of Georgian manners... and ill manners!


£12.50, £15.00
