We are the Ripple Effect: Lesser Spoken stories

Friday 22 Sept at 6pm – 7pm. Light refreshments available.

A special chance to meet peacemakers who have contributed their stories to a new book by Teya Sepinuck.

We are the Ripple Effect shares the stories of ten courageous performers from The Playhouse’s Theatre of Witness Programme – survivors, ex combatants, former security forces and witnesses of the Troubles. This book highlights their personal journeys through conflict and trauma as they transform individually and together into present-day peace builders.

This informal drop in event is a chance to personally meet some of these exceptional peace leaders, thirteen years after they first told their stories on stage.

Join us for wine and a dedicated space for reading and conversation.

Suitable for ages 14+

“This is an important book for all those invested in building peace” Maureen Hetherington, Northern Ireland peace-builder.
