Comic theatre hit ‘The History of the Troubles (accordin’ to my Da)’ by MAC Productions visits the Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre, Limavady, on Monday 20 May, 8pm.
The fast, frenetic and hilarious comedy is set against the last thirty-four years of the Northern Ireland troubles. We meet one ordinary Belfast man, Rolling Stones fan Gerry Courtney. Gerry’s story begins on the first day of the outbreak of the Troubles, the 14th August 1969, as he awaits the birth of his first child at the Royal Victoria Hospital whilst the city erupts in violence beyond the hospital walls. His life will never be the same again as he witnesses momentous historical events including internment, Bloody Sunday, the Loyalist Workers Strike, Bill Clinton’s visit and the ceasefires. Along the way we encounter some of the maddest, baddest and funniest characters Belfast has ever known.
Written by acclaimed playwright Martin Lynch with Conor Grimes and Alan McKee, it also stars well-known comedians Grimes and McKee alongside Ivan Little.
Tickets cost £15 full / £13 concession and interval complimentary refreshments are provided. Contact the centre’s Box Office on Tel: 028 7776 0650 or visit www.roevalleyarts.com for further information.
