The Playhouse Derry/Londonderry present Colin Bateman’s Bag for Life

“What are we to make of the men of violence whose time has been and gone, and who have settled into both civil and civilian life? Is there any reason at all to suppose that their capacity for murder has somehow drained away, or will it always be there, like a lining of grease and fat lurking in their mental plumbing?”

Award winning novelist and screenwriter Colin Bateman’s second stage play asks the question – can forgiveness overcome the want for revenge in 21st century Northern Ireland?
