This is the story of how a small Theatre transformed the cultural life of an Irish city.
Theatres possess a special atmosphere that actors and performers recognised instantly. At rehersals, they clued into the spirits of the Hall, picking up on vibes and whispers of the past.
Theatre deals with imagination; calling for what S.T. Coleridge describes as a “suspension of disbelief” between audience and performers.
If Walls Could Talk! picks up those echoes. Actors and artists; musicians and politicains; camedians and clowns; each played a role in the drama.
