Best of drama and rock music at Market Place Theatre in Armagh

Following their first visit to The Market Place Theatre last October with a sold-out performance of ‘Lady Windermere’s Fan’ Theatrical Niche Ltd return to the venue on Friday 1 June, with a new adaptation of ‘A Doll’s House’ based on Henrik Ibsen’s classic tale.

Mr & Mrs Helmer are the iconic power couple. They excel at work, staying on top, socialising. They excel at excelling.

But as his autobiography rolls out around Christmas-time, it seems there are a few things that Mr. Helmer may not have mentioned in the foreword.

Exploring stigmas around gender expectations and mental health, this artful adaptation focuses on the impossible idolisation of one ‘perfect’ woman, by a man who walks with weights around his ankles.

Incorporating visually-stunning choreography and emotive, real-life Verbatim interviews, our contemporary version will rocket Ibsen’s famous tale into a hugely relevant re-telling for modern audiences.

Then for a complete chance of tempo, alt rock quartet, Hunkpapa will perform on Saturday 2 June, after selling out every show they have played in their home city of Belfast.

The band are proving to be one the best bands Northern Ireland has to offer and deliver their songs through an enthralling live performance.

As Phil Taggart on BBC Radio 1 said of them, ‘I’m blown away by how good Hunkpapa are. One of the best bands I’ve seen in ages- massive, massive tunes.’

Tickets can be booked through the Box Office on [028] 3752 1821, or online at
