Carthaginians by Frank McGuinness
Directed by Adrian Dunbar
Carthaginians has often been acknowledged as one of the few enduring plays to have emerged from 'The Troubles'.

This production commemorates the 40th anniversary of Bloody Sunday and, appropriately within the theme of Carthaginians celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Millennium Forum Theatre, Derry/Londonderry. More

'I got my first pair of glasses when I was seven. A nurse came to the school and tested everyone's eyes.

Until that day the world was a swirl of moving coloured blobs. I thought it was the same for everyone. How wrong I was.'
