Chronicles of Long Kesh
The Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre
03300 561 025


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 Motown 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.
