About Us

Green Curtain Theatre 2021

Green Curtain theatre was set up ten years ago to create, produce and stage theatre which told the stories of Irish people who had made their home in Great Britain.

 

Unfortunately Covid 19 restrictions impacted on our ability to produce live theatre this year so we went online. Below our some of the pieces that we produced.

‘Looking Back Across the Water’ is a compilation of monologues, written by members of the Irish diaspora living in Great Britain. For this project we asked people to write a monologue which revealed told the stories why some Irish people had chosen to make their home in Great Britain since 1921.  Here is the video:

 “Songs From the Heart- Songs From Home”

For this project we recorded why a particular  Irish song meant so much to the following people.
‘The Rose of Tralee’ to Ethel Corduff
‘Bless This House’ to Hugh
The Fields of Athenry’ to Sinead Savage
‘Bi Thusa Mo Shuile’ to Crystal Baigent
‘Danny Boy’ to Daniel Kearney
‘Mheilte Cheann Dubhrann’  to Margaret Felton

For St Patrick’s Day we asked the young members of our community to perform a piece for us. We filmed them in their own homes. We hope you like it.
