Under the Black Rock starring Evanna Lynch opens at the Arcola Theatre tonight

Evanna Lynch's new play 'Under the Black Rock' premieres tonight at London's Arcola Theatre.  The play is set in Belfast during the height of the Troubles in Northern Ireland. 

She stars as Niamh Ryan who is drawn into the conflict as part of a divided family.  As the divisions within the community increase, she grows from a naïve new recruit to a battle-hardened operative. The play illustrates the fear that is created when no one is quite what they seem. Under the Black Rock poses questions about family loyalty, morality and how young men and women are drawn into violence.

The play comes as the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday agreement approaches and serves as a warning from history.  It is written by Tim Edge who has spoken extensively to communities who were present in Belfast at the time.  

Evanna said, “I’m honoured to be part of this production of Under the Black Rock, a play that boldly and compassionately explores the topic of violent extremism during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, a period in history that even as a child I knew only to ask about in hushed tones. Even today, it’s a topic you learn to tread lightly around so I was moved by the way this play manages to prompt deep reflection of the past and its bearing on the future.
