Set in the midst of ‘The Troubles’, Rat in the Skull centres on an interview between a Royal Ulster Constabulary inspector and a young Catholic man in London detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act.
Told from the point of view of an Ulster Protestant, it casts a new perspective on the struggle. Their sectarian differences fall away when confronted with ‘casual loathing’ of their English counterparts.
The production is a partnership between Bardic Theatre (County Tyrone, NI) and the Liverpool Irish Festival and helps us to mark 20 years of the Good Friday Agreement, signed in 1998. It has been supported by the Mid Ulster Council, Arts Council England and St George’s Hall.
