Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme by Frank McGuinness

September 4 - 20 (limited dates available)

Charity Randall Theatre

How strong is the bond between men united by the call to arms? Eight young men of Ulster, thrown together for army training during the Great War, must move beyond the troubles between Protestant and Catholic as they prepare for the Battle of the Somme. Frank McGuinness’ lyrical play captures the fierce friendship and loyalty among men who must face the tragedy and wastefulness of war.


Macbeth by William Shakespeare

October 8 - 25 (limited dates available)

Charity Randall Theatre

“Something wicked this way comes.” As Macbeth’s ambition grows, fueled by the prophecies of the three witches, he and his Lady begin a campaign of devastation and death to secure the throne of Scotland. How far will they go to satisfy the blossoming wickedness in their hearts? Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy will leave you breathless.
