The Freedom of the City

Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts (MA/PG in Theatre Directing)

Lilach Yosiphon

Performances take place at the The Cockpit, NW8 8EH

During a peaceful demonstration three civilians find themselves trapped in the Londonderry Mayor’s office.

Outside, the world uses their plight to paint them as terrorists or martyrs. Inspired by true events, Brian Friel’s 1973 classic is still potent, especially in the light of the 2010 Saville Inquiry which declared the Bloody Sunday shootings unjustifiable.

A cast of just three actors play all 17 parts in this production which asks the question what is the reality and how does it become history?
