Flesh and Blood by Dawn Purvis, Brenda Murphy and Jo Egan, Thursday 29 May, Roe Valley Arts Centre, Limavady, 8pm

flesh and blood women

Flesh and Blood Women, a contemporary theatre event featuring three dynamic plays in one evening, all exploring the lives of women in Northern Ireland visits us on Thursday 29 May, 8pm.

Be prepared to be shocked, to laugh, cry and perhaps even shout out loud at this all female production. Written by three Belfast-based writers, the plays reveal the kind of stories about women which never see the light of day. The award-winning writer Brenda Murphy (of international hit My Night with George) tells the extraordinary, true story of her mother’s shocking relationship with her father. Activist Dawn Purvis tells a tragic tale about forbidden love in the 1970s. Award-winning writer/director Jo Egan’s play tells the stunning story of two friends with conflicting memories about a life-changing incident from their childhood.

What is even more extraordinary is that this riveting, poignant and humorous production by Green Shoot is an all-female effort. This is the first play in the history of Ulster theatre to have a completely all female production team. This amazing project also boasts being directed by Noreen Kershaw, who has directed over sixty episodes of Coronation Street, over 40 episodes of Emmerdale, as well as popular series like Shameless and Heartbeat. Her next job after Flesh and Blood Women will be ITV’s female detective series Scott and Bailey, starring Suranne Jones and Lesley Sharp.

Tickets cost £10 full/£8 concession and include a community group special discount rate and are available from our Box Office on 02877760650.
