Resident theatre company at The Playhouse and leading theatre company for adults with learning difficulties, Lilliput, will be performing a special two-hander of Jack Scoltock plays this month.
The theatre company, who brought ‘Macbeth’, ‘Hope in the Derry Workhouse’ and ‘Dr Watt’s Squeeze Box’ by Dave Duggan to The Playhouse will now bring ‘Last Mile To Manchester’ and ‘The Atheist’ to the stage on Tuesday 24 and Wednesday April 25. The first play - “Last Mile To Manchester” – is an Alfred Hitchcock style suspense thriller where six passengers on a train journey are not who you might first think they are.
This will be followed by a second play - “The Atheist” – where the recently deceased Paul Mc Gartan from Derry has a somewhat strange journey to Heaven’s gates where St Peter has to decide on Heaven or Hell.
“These two plays have a lot of humour and entertainment value and should not be missed,” Pauline Ross at The Playhouse said.
“All members of Lilliput have worked extremely hard, whilst having a lot of fun, and we would encourage everyone to come along to this very special night of local theatre.”
There will be a matinee performance of the plays on Tuesday April 24 at 11am.
Evening performances will take place on Tuesday April 24 (invited audience) and Wednesday 25 at 8pm.
Tickets are £5 for any performance and can be arranged via any Lilliput member or via The playhouse Box Office (028) 71268027 or online at www.derryplayhouse.co.uk.
