Coleraine’s Riverside Theatre is heading towards Easter with a packed programme of events.

On Wednesday, April 9 at 8pm the More Drama Academy will be presenting its showcase production, the hilarious comedy Confusions, by Alan Ayckbourn.

This unique look at human relationships is one of Ayckbourn’s most famous dramas, comprising five short self-contained plays, tenuously linked together by characters or plot, best describes this comical and energetic play.

Riverside is delighted to host this first, comedy production performed by the GCSE students of Coleraine’s More Dramatic Theatre Company.

And on Thursday, April 10 the theatre stages a performance of the stunning Irish poem, The Great Hunger – written by Patrick Kavanagh and performed by professional actor Peter Duffy.

Duffy’s powerful theatrical performance of this has been touring the country for the past year to both popular and critical acclaim.

Generally considered to be Patrick Kavanagh’s finest work, “The Great Hunger” sharply delineates a life of economic and imaginative privation.

This powerful production should not be missed by anyone with a love of Irish literature and good acting.

And finally, patrons are reminded that if they haven’t yet booked their seats for the Riverside Youth Theatre’s production of Annie Junior – they should do so fast! The production plays nightly at 8pm from Tuesday, April 15 through until Thursday, April 17.
