The Playhouse Theatre and Peacebuilding Academy Presents:

FIRST RESPONSE: TRUE STORIES FROM THE FRONT LINE - devised by a cast of first responders and directed by Ailin Conant

Tickets: Free, however booking is essential.

Throat clenches. Palm sweats. Vision tunnels. Breath shallows. Stomach knots. We all share a nervous system designed to respond to crisis in a certain way. But what happens when your professional duty requires you to run towards the scene of the horror, at a time when everyone else is running away?

 

First Response has been created and performed by Fire-fighters, Paramedics, Nurses, Journalists, Police Officers, Community Workers, and Counsellors who worked the front lines of some of the most difficult experiences of The Troubles. What secrets do these men and women hold in their physiology, and how can their story help us understand ourselves and the society we live in today?
