Theatre of Witness Workshop at The Playhouse Theatre Derry/Londonderry

The Play House Theatre will be hosting an in-person workshop ‘Theatre of Witness’ on Thursday 23rd of September at 2pm 

Theatre of Witness is a form of testimonial performance performed by people sharing their personal and collective stories of suffering, transformation and peace. The work brings people together across divides of difference to bear witness to truth, healing and reconciliation.

Engage with performers and storytellers from all sides and realties of The Troubles to explore the path to healing from conflict. Workshops enable the performers to screen video footage of their original Theatre of Witness production and talk about their experiences.

The workshops also give the opportunity for participants to ask questions about things that are rarely spoken about. Performers include former police officers, paramilitaries and relatives of those killed or injured.
