About: Chronicles of Long Kesh

The smash hit of the Edinburgh Festival 2009.

Written by Northern Ireland’s celebrated playwright Martin Lynch, the painful, shocking and hilarious story of Northern Ireland’s infamous prison – Long Kesh – told through the eyes of prison officers, Republicans and Loyalists, a rich assortment of patriots, chancers, leaders, wives, escapers and hypochondriacs!

A huge crowd-pleaser, full of 1960’s Motown songs and wild, irreverent humour.

Reviews

**** ‘Simple staging and superb performances work an unshowy magic.’ The Guardian

**** ‘Fierce and gripping, direct from Belfast and dripping with the sound, fury and black humour of that city… played out at breakneck speed on tremendous energy … snatches of the music of the day all sung a cappella… light relief and a period touch in one winning, theatrical flourish.’ The Times

‘Physical, loud, sweary, funny, perfectly choreographed, terrifying and still, again, funny.’ The Observer
