Following phenomenal success last year, Two Sore Legs will make a triumphant return to The Old Courthouse, Antrim on Monday 26 September at 7.30pm.

Set in Belfast in the 1950’s and 60’s Two Sore Legs is a powerful, autobiographical play.  Brenda Murphy’s mother Bridie, a young Butlin’s Redcoat, had 6 children by a married man who lived around the corner with his other family. The play explores the pain, joy and the fall-out from this extraordinary family arrangement.  From the rowdy, fractious relationship Bridie had with her own father to the explosive but hilarious visits of the local Parish Priest, this play drips explicit family emotions.

In an absolute tour de force this is the best performance you’ll see this year as Maria Connolly purrs, struts, weeps and explodes around the stage in equal measure. This story will stay with you long after you’ve left the theatre.

‘One woman’s true story you simply won’t believe.’ Tickets from £12 available at Box Office or www.antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk/boxoffice
