Frank McGuinness’ ‘Carthaginians’ to tour

As Derry marks the 40th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday, the Millennium Forum has announced plans to embark on its first touring production when acclaimed actor/director, Adrian Dunbar, directs a brand new production of Frank McGuinness’ ‘Carthaginians’.

The play will open at the Forum on Wednesday, February 22, and run until Saturday, February 25, before touring extensively throughout Ireland.

‘Carthaginians’ has often been acknowledged as one of the few enduring plays to have emerged from ‘The Troubles’. An elegy for Bloody Sunday, it is the survival of tragedy, of intense grief which becomes the unspoken subject through the personal journeys of three women and three men who camp out in a graveyard awaiting the rise of the dead.

This production commemorates the 40th anniversary of Bloody Sunday and, appropriately within the theme of Carthaginians celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Millennium Forum.

‘Carthaginians’ opens at the Forum on Wednesday, February 22, and run until Saturday, February 25. Tickets from the Box Office on: 71. 264455 or visit: www.millenniumforum.co.uk for bookings.
