It was the show they talked and laughed about weeks after it first ran in the Millennium Forum last year.

And in six weeks time ‘From the Camp to the Creggan’ makes its return to the Derry stage.

The show’s creator Brian Foster was recently honoured at the Derry Journal people of the year awards for his Contribution to Arts and Culture Award.

And he says she’s thrilled to be bringing the production of From the camp to Creggan back to the Millennium Forum.

This year’s production sees one change to the original cast.

Rachel Melaugh will now play Maggie Kelly, the hard pressed young mother struggling to bring her family up with some dignity in Springtown Camp back in the early 60s.

Irreverent, hilarious, side splitting and heartwarming.

There are so many words you could use to describe this play.. Last year the crowd practically had to scoop themselves off the floor at the end after convulsing with laughter.

Starring the finest bunch of actors this city has ever produced you will roaring with laughter in one breath, while reaching for the tissues in the next.

Once you meet ‘Shitty Kitty’ S’Hugo and Paddy Pee the Bed, you’ll never forget them.

Last year Foster’s play was hailed as a masterpiece enjoying standing ovations every night. If you missed it last year, make sure you don’t miss out this year. Tickets are already selling fast.

Brian Foster’s critically acclaimed ‘From the Camp to the Creggan’ runs at the Millennium Forum from Tuesday, 21 October 2014 to Saturday, 25 October 2014.

To celebrate the return of this much loved play there is an opening night offer on the Tuesday.

All seats £12.50* (£12.00 ticket + 0.50p Development Donation)

Tickets for the rest of the week (Wednesday to Saturday) are £17.50* (£17.00 + 0.50p Development Donation)
