The Playhouse presents Walking to The Ark by Carlo Gébler Directed by Kieran Griffiths Wednesday 27th May 2015 to Saturday 30th May 2015 8pm

The mid 1660s.

Charles II is the king of Britain and Ireland. Thomas Whitney, a professional soldier in the Irish army, fathers a child by his mistress, Martha.

Twenty-five years later Colonel Whitney finds himself inside Derry during the 1689 siege when his son, a Jacobite, arrives in the city, a prisoner.

In this brand new piece, Irish writer Carlo Gébler explores both the horrible choices wars force individuals to make, as well as the ingenious way Whitney and his son, Nicholas, manage to make common cause.



Tickets: £15/ £12 (group rates available)
