Philip Orr

Historian Philip Orr has announced details for a new drama piece exploring the events of 1916, The Halfway House.

Set in 1966, the drama will play out in a snow bound pub in the Sperrins when two women meet by chance.

During the conversation that follows the two discover personal connections to the wartime events from 50 years previously both in Ireland and abroad. The piece will be followed a public discussion.

The project has received the support of the Community Relations Council. 

This performance is being supported by Fitzroy Presbyterian Church and the Fitzroy/Clonard Fellowship.
