LAST week saw the world premiere at the Iontas Theatre in Castleblayney of the new play, ‘The Common People’ by acclaimed playwright Declan Gorman.
This play was funded by the Peace III initiative through Artswell, the Arts Company at Iontas. ‘The Common People’ set out to tell the stories and examine the experiences that all people in the Border region have in common, regardless of culture or creed and it was very warmly received at Iontas with sold out houses for 3 nights running. The play has been a great success thanks to a fantastic cast and crew who brought the piece to life. Ms Carmel Rudden, Arts Development Officer at Iontas and administrator of the project thanked all who had given of their time from both sides of the border to make this play the success it was and looked forward to many more nights like that in Iontas Theatre.
