Description

“What takes courage is to compete in the arena of democracy”

Playing to over 10,000 audience members in a sold-out run-in March/April 2023, Agreement will return for a limited three-week run at the Lyric Theatre prior to a run in New York at the Irish Arts Centre in April/May 2024, sponsored by FinTrU.

Along with critic appraisal, positive audience feedback and attendance figures, the production attracted major international recognition, with VIP visitors and dignitaries including Senator George Mitchell, Secretary Hillary Clinton, members of the Women’s Coalition and the families of David Trimble, Mo Mowlam, Gerry Adams and John Hume.

The clock is ticking. It’s April 1998 and the main political parties in Northern Ireland, the British Government and the Irish Government, all under the watchful eye of Senator George Mitchell, try to hammer out a deal that could pave the way for peace in Northern Ireland. Every word, every movement, every stare means something. This is the last chance saloon and no one is leaving until Agreement is reached one way or another.

In this award winning new play, originally commissioned by MGC* by one of our foremost playwrights, Owen McCafferty examines the negotiations leading up to the Good Friday Agreement and weaves real drama out of this complex, momentous and landmark moment for Northern Ireland.

*Michael Grandage Company

This production is proudly sponsored by FinTrU
