Description

The Lyric Theatre invites you to take a seat, tune in and enjoy an exclusive ‘first listen’ of brand new work from emerging, established and new Northern Ireland writers, as part of the new ‘Listen at the Lyric’ series.

The Lyric has been able to open its doors and welcome casts and creative teams back into the building to record a series of audio plays to share with their audiences.

The Gap Year by Clare McMahon: Kate, Roisin and Oonagh decide enough is enough, life is too short - sure didn’t Kate’s husband drop dead in the bread aisle of Lidl? They’re going to follow in their children’s footsteps and take a Gap Year. Thailand? Europe? Down Under? No, they’re going to visit every county in Ireland, sure there are a few they’ve never even heard of? (Available 29 September to 12 October)

Burnt Out by Gary Mitchell: This dark psychological thriller follows a couple as their perfect life unravels into a disorientating nightmare of suspicion, paranoia, and intimidation when they unwittingly move to a new home opposite a bonfire site. (Available 13 to 16 October)

2050 Under the Albert Clock; A selection of short plays from Northern Ireland’s most dynamic female playwrights:  2050 Under the Albert Clock is a series of monologues that will be released in two parts on 27 October and the 10 November. Originally commissioned for the Origins 1st Irish Festival in New York in January 2020, these monologues are set in a Belfast of the future and showcase some of Northern Ireland's most dynamic female writers - Sarah Gordon, Emily Dedakis, Gina Donnelly, Alice Malseed, and Finn Kennedy. Part one available 27 October to 9 November, part two available 10 November to 23 November.

You can book now for these three performances, and you will be sent a link to the audio on the release date for each play. The plays will be available to listen to for up to two weeks. Please make sure you have subscribed to the Lyric Theatre’s mailing list to receive your link after booking.
