Tearing the Loom & In a Little World of Our Own

By Gary Mitchell

Paperback £11.99£9.59

Two plays from playwright Gary Mitchell, known for his powerful explorations of the conflicts troubling Northern Ireland.

Tearing the Loom (1998) is a searing portrait of a community divided against itself, set in a weaver's cottage in County Armagh at the time of the 1798 Rebellion.

In a Little World of Our Own (1997) is a powerful illustration of how the conflict in Northern Ireland affects whole families, and of how the violence of the streets is brought into the heart of the home.
