The Playhouse presents Tillies by Patsy Durnin At The Millennium Forum Friday 19th April 2013 to Saturday 20th April 2013 8pm

An affectionate epitaph to the women and men who sewed, sweated, laughed and cried in Derry's shirt factories through the decades, ‘Tillies' is a vivid and emotional portrait of the famous factory and its times.

Opened in 1856, Tillies and Henderson's factory stood for one hundred and forty seven years as a testament to the industrialist William Tillie and to the sewing skills of the factory girls of the city until its eventual demolition in 2003.


Tickets: £9.50/ £12.50/ £15 Box Office: (028)71 264 455 or
