GBL Productions present Chronicles of Long Kesh by Martin Lynch

The hilarious, painful and shocking story of Northern Ireland’s infamous prison — Long Kesh — is told through the eyes of prison officers, Republicans and Loyalists, a rich assortment of patriots, chancers, leaders, wives, escapers and hypochondriacs!

A huge crowd-pleaser, full of 1960’s Mo-Town songs and wild, irreverent humour, this is the inside story of The Troubles.

Chronicles of Long Kesh last played in Belfast in 2012 with a sold-out run and standing ovations every single night! The play has toured throughout Northern Ireland and was a smash-hit at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

***** “Fierce and gripping, direct from Belfast and dripping with the sound, fury and black humour of that city… played out at breakneck speed on tremendous energy … snatches of the music of the day all sung a cappella… light relief and a period touch in one winning, theatrical flourish.” THE TIMES

**** “Simple staging and superb performances work an un-showy magic.” THE GUARDIAN

**** “Physical, loud, sweary, funny, perfectly choreographed, terrifying and still, again, funny.” THE OBSERVER

“A must-see!” SUNDAY TIMES

“Vibrant & Provocative” BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE

“With great dialogue and outstanding performances, it is a work of immense strength and power…Chronicles of Long Kesh is an outstanding piece of theatre.” BELFAST NEWS LETTER
