Lay Up Your Ends: 40th Anniversary Exhibit

9th October 2023 - 3rd November 2023

The Linen Hall is an invaluable source of theatrical material from Northern Ireland. To mark the fortieth anniversary of Charabanc’s landmark production, Lay Up Your Ends, we will host an exhibit of holdings from our Theatre and Performing Arts Archive, including items relating to Charabanc and other theatre companies and theatres, including The Lyric and Kabosh, as well as items from theatre-makers and playwrights, such as Christina Reid, Jo Egan and Carol Moore.

About Lay Up Your Ends 40

This year marks 40 years since the premiere of Charabanc Theatre Company’s landmark production, Lay Up Your Ends. The Linen Hall, in partnership with Ulster University and Queen’s University Belfast, and as part of the Belfast International Arts Festival, is joining the three-day celebration of Charabanc’s work. This diverse programme will highlight the histories of women’s, feminist, and queer theatre, along with discussions on gender equality in Northern Ireland.

As part of this programme, The Linen Hall will host an exhibition, a workshop and a tribute event to the late playwright Jo Egan.
