For our Belfast run, audiences will have a rare opportunity to get inside this glorious Victorian building. (But it's March... please wrap up warmly!) And we'll be converting one area into a makeshift bar, so come along from 7.00pm for a drink and a sneaky peek around the warehouse before the drama begins.
Riddell's Warehouse is a four-storey building constructed 1865 - 67 by Thomas Jackson & Son for John Riddell & Son. The warehouse sold cast iron manufactured at the Musgrave Iron Foundry until it relocated in the 1960s. The building was later acquired as part of Musgrave Street Police Station and served as a store room 'security buffer zone' during the Troubles.
In September 2014 it was announced that, with financial assistance from Ulster Garden Villages Ltd, the Hearth Revolving Fund, a building preservation trust, had purchased the building. Hearth intends to raise £3m to redevelop the B1 listed building as an art gallery for the Royal Ulster Academy.
Don't miss the chance to experience our new production in the atmospheric surroundings of this fascinating Victorian warehouse on Belfast's Ann Street. Gordon Osràm’s Funeral, about a performance artist who plans his own final retrospective, will unfold over several floors. We’ll be using various nooks and crannies of this fabulous building to house different installations that audiences can enjoy both before and as part of the play.
Check out the photos and book today - Riddell's Warehouse has limited capacity so please book early to avoid disappointment.
