Scenes From An Inquiry by Dave Duggan will be a headline event of the Festival of Theatre for Social Change in Derry, Ireland to mark 25 years of Sole Purpose Productions and the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday.
A powerful play which captures the emotional impact of Bloody Sunday and the experiences of family members and witnesses during The Saville Inquiry. The play was first produced in 2002 to mark the 30th anniversary of Bloody Sunday in partnership with the Bloody Sunday families and the Bloody Sunday Trust. Dave Duggan subsequently wrote a radio drama version, which was broadcast on RTE Radio 1.
The production is directed by Kat Woods who is currently under commission with The MAC, Tinderbox Theatre, and the Abbey Theatre. The stellar cast includes: Caoimhe Farren (The Ferryman – West End, Derry Girls, This Way Up, Doctors), Nicky Harley (Rough Girls – Lyric Theatre, Denouement – Lyric Theatre/ Traverse Theatre, On the Street Where we live – The MAC), and Michael Johnston (Bruiser, Big Telly, The MAC).
The performances will be followed by a Q&A with the writer.
