“She was all right when she left us”
On 2 August 42 children aged 4 – 13 from Letterbreen to Ballyconnell, from each side of the border and the religious divide came together to participate in a week long drama school. The project was delivered under Peace IV funding peace and the Ulster Scots play “She was all right when she left us” was part of the Pat and Plain series written by Dan Brown and facilitated by Class Act Drama.
The drama allowed the children to get to know each other through the medium of drama. Classes were held in both Trivia House, Swanlinbar, Co Cavan and Kinawley Community Centre, Co Fermanagh and the project is managed by Swanlinbar Development Association. A year long project is planned which will include a trip to the Titanic Centre and a community youth choir.
