SL&NCR: a new play by Carlo Gébler, plus the return of The Box
March 2019 sees the debut of a new play by Dr Carlo Gébler of the Oscar Wilde Centre for Irish Writing. SL&NCR celebrates the loves, losses and landscape of the Sligo, Leitrim and Northern Counties Railway, and is based on stories gathered from members of active age groups, historical societies and railway enthusiasts.
Written with and for young people from Fermanagh and Leitrim, this cross-community and cross-border youth theatre performance is presented by Kabosh Theatre Company and is the culmination of a nine months of youth engagement activity as part of The Glens Centre’s Across the Lines International Fund for Ireland programme.
It will be performed at the Glens Centre, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim on Saturday 30 March 2019 at 8pm, and at the Ardhowen Theatre, Enniskillen, the following night, Sunday 31 March 2019 at 7.30pm. Booking is now open on the Glens Centre website for the 30 March performance: https://glenscentre.ticketsolve.com/shows/873601445
Later in January, Carlo’s play The Box, which tells the story of Olive Swanzy, a nurse from Co.
Down who served during World War I, will tour venues in Down and Armagh, in a beautiful and poignant production, also by Kabosh Theatre. The Box will play at the following venues, and performances will be followed by post-show discussions.
