We brought creativity to schools in November, partnering with St. Conor’s College, Kilrea to present a performance of Brian Goder’s TEECHERS by Bruiser Theatre to pupils. Year 11 & 12 Drama Students of Dominican College, Portstewart and Coleraine Grammar School enjoyed exploring Brian Friel’s seminal play PHILADELPHIA HERE I COME using physical theatre, led by Bruiser Theatre Company.
As part of the same FRIEL REIMAGINED project lead by Queens University Belfast (which aims to digitise a selection of Friel’s papers held at the National Library of Ireland, and open them up to connect diverse audiences) adults engaged in a 4-week course at Flowerfield to delve into the playwrighting and performance of TRANSLATIONS, facilitated by the project Theatre Partners Bruiser Theatre Co.
The Bruiser Theatre workshop was a wonderful experience and a great way to learn lots of new skills for drama. Rob and Connor led us in a series of hilarious activities that I know we all thoroughly enjoyed!

The Bruiser Theatre workshop was one of the best workshops I’ve been to. The activities to start everyone off always made the whole group smile. I would definitely do it all again!
