Worlds Apart. Tuesday 5th July 8:00pm - 10:00pm in the Rath Mor Centre, Blighs Lane. Worlds Apart tells the story of Mabel and Nora, two sisters who are separated in 1970 when Mabel moves to Australia as she doesn't want to live in Derry anymore due to the emerging troubles and the impact of sustained sectarian violence on her life. What follows is the correspondence between the sisters over the next 50 years, by letter, telephone and eventually zoom. This one hour production looks at the issue of innocent families torn apart as Northern Ireland spiralled into a generation of terror and violence.
