Divided by History

A specially created new drama piece inspired by the events of 1916 will take place at the Millennium Forum, Derry on November 10. 

Based on real events, 'Divided by History, United by Music' is a tale of two men who are worlds apart yet live strikingly similar lives.

The play portrays the story of John Love and James Downey - two men from different parts of the city and both fighting at the Battle of the Somme, but for very different reasons. 

This poignant and sensitively portrayed play is written by acclaimed Artistic Director Jonathan Burgess with new music commissioned by well known Musical Director Noel Barr. 

With a 100+ cast and some of the best local talent on display this is sure to be a fantastic night which celebrates the cultural diversity of the Maiden City. This play is on for one night only, purchase tickets early to avoid disappointment!
