100 Years On returns to the stage for just 2 performances on 5th September

100 Years On – a quirky take on the decade of centenaries


A Trilogy of Quirky Takes on the Decade of Centenaries

Can a soldier woo a suffragette at the picket line during the Belfast Engineers strike?

What did the signing of the Ulster Covenant mean to a maid and a butler working in “a big house” in 1912?

What went through the postman’s mind as he brought the dreaded Standard Army Form B104–82 to his neighbour’s door informing her of the death of his childhood friend, her husband, at the Battle of the Somme.

100 Years On is a trilogy of short plays which use these 3 questions as a backdrop to exploring some of the key events in the period 1912 to 1922 and their legacy today.

Showing for 2 performances only in the Old Courthouse Theatre in Antrim on Friday 5th September (2.30pm and 7.30pm).  There is no charge for admission to either performance – to book or for more information contact Karen McFarlane ksmcfarlane@hotmail.com or 90491161
