As the air turns chill and the nights creep in, the Lyric Theatre invites you to draw the curtains, light the fire, and prepare to be thoroughly spooked by three eerie tales of strange goings-on around Ulster…

Commissioned especially for our Listen At The Lyric series of audio plays, we are thrilled to present three brand new monologues inspired by the folk tales of Ulster – and some unexplained real life experiences…

Directed by Emma Jordan and performed by three of Northern Ireland’s greatest acting talents, Sean Kearns, Frankie McCafferty and Stella McCusker.

Don’t have nightmares…

Bad Ground by Gary Crossan, performed by Sean Kearns

After a tough year, Frank Devine has returned to his dilapidated family home in Co.Derry to renovate the building and start a new chapter.  As he chips away at the mountain of work needing done, will he uncover things that refuse to go back where they came from?

Outside Her by Karis Halsall, performed by Stella McCusker

"Sit you down there and huddle in...  "

Join elderly Iris as she recounts a terrifying tale from her youth. When teenage Iris' mother is killed on the Devil's elbow, her father moves them out to a strange shaped and remote farmhouse - which local legend says was built on a fairy road. Iris chalks this up to being "freety nonsense" - until the phone calls begin. When she's first contacted by some unseen thing, Iris assumes it's her mother attempting to reach her, but the reality is much, much more sinister...

Based on true stories, recounted by Karis' family from Co. Down.

The Familial Binds of Cheiromancy by Kat Woods, performed by Frankie McCafferty

The O’Rourke’s of Benaughlin Mountain, Fermanagh, have been reading palms for generations until now. Mark has a strange encounter and decides to retire early from the profession much to the disillusionment of his elderly Mammy who wants him to continue the family tradition. All is not what it seems when she comes to call.
