The Play: The Bog Couple
Fate and a couple of failed marriages have crashed two men together under the same roof in the Rossville Flats in the midst of The Troubles - in what can only be described as the mismatch of the century. Set in the Rossville Flats in the Bogside in 1976, ‘The Bog Couple' (inspired by Neil Simon's The Odd Couple) is a riotous new comedy coming to The Playhouse in February 2018.
Written by Dr Liam Campbell and directed by Kieran Griffiths the play will hold a series of readings, performances, and workshops in the Bogside, Fountain and Bishop Street. The Bog Couple will have its full world premiere at The Playhouse from Tuesday 13 to Saturday 17 February 2018. More information about the play is available here.
Those answering this call will be involved in every step of the play's production from page to stage.
