Halfway House Play – Dealing with the Past 100 years on (change from published seminar)

Session date: Friday 12th August 2016 Session time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm Session location: U123 Session track ,

It’s a winter’s night; snow has made driving across the Sperrins impossible. Louise and Bronagh, with similar but different backgrounds, end up in the back room of a pub. A conversation they never expected starts about their families and about 1916, the Somme and the Rising.’

And so begins ‘The Halfway House’, a play written by Philip Orr and commissioned by Contemporary Christianity. With their help and in a change to the publicised seminar, we are very excited to be bringing this play to New horizon as our contribution to dealing with the past 100 years on.
