Philip Orr to unveil new drama on 1916

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 drama will tour to venues across Northern Ireland throughout January including to Larne, Newry, Lurgan and Omagh. The piece has received the support of the Community Relations Council.
