This final programme is for 1 week starting Monday 29 July to Friday 2 August from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm with a performance on Friday 3 August at 2.00 pm to which family members will be invited. Participants need to be free to attend every day in order to ensure that they have completed all activities for the final performance. The drama summer school will involve a range of learning methods (music, dance, language etc) aside from drama to help instil heritage, culture and mutual respect into the programme and the participants who take part. The play chosen is Part of the Pat and Plain series commissioned by the Ulster Scots Agency exploring social and economic heritage and Ulster Scots language. The play is a story of a group of children evacuated to the countryside during World War 2. They are city dwellers and through their eyes we learn about farming and the countryside. The drama will be delivered in in a way whereby the participants will be inspired to learn about their different heritage and history in a safe environment using drama as a learning tool. Ulster Scots and Irish language and traditions will be woven into the performance.
This drama will be the final part of the programme which started last summer. As such those who have already participated will be given first option for places. As this is a PEACE IV programme participants must be made up of a 60/40 cross community breakdown.
(Monday) 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
