The Playhouse Derry/Londonderry to stage new drama fifty years on from Bloody Sunday

Monday 8th November 2021 at 5pm 0 Comments

To mark the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, The Playhouse Derry/Londonderry will present The White Handkerchief, a major new drama taking place in the building that was the intended destination of the protest march through the city on 30 January 1972. The play’s title is inspired by the enduring image of Father Edward Daly, waving a blood-soaked handkerchief as he led a group of people attempting to escort a young victim to safety. Broadcast across the world as part of global commemorations of Bloody Sunday, the play will be performed by the people of Derry, following the creation of The Playhouse’s new musical theatre academy.
