Freedom of the City
By Brian Friel

Directed by Doug Bennett

Season 3 2008: 
2 September to 20 September

Victorian Drama League "Best Production' winner 2008 

Set in Derry in 1970, in the aftermath of a Civil Rights meeting, this play conjures the events of Bloody Sunday. Three unarmed marchers find themselves in the mayor's parlour in the Guildhall. Reports and rumours exaggerate their 'occupation' of forty armed rebels and they are shot by British soldiers as they surrender. The play documents the victims' final hours and a subsequent tribunal of inquiry into their deaths.
