We'd like to wish regular blog readers a very merry and safe Christmas, and a happy New Year. The blog will resume posting early in the first week of January - we look forward to seeing you then.

'In the face of deep divisions that keep our communities apart, the Lyric serves as a powerful unifying force, providing a safe and neutral space in which people from different backgrounds come together to be empowered, inspired, engaged and entertained. I really believe in the power of theatre to break down barriers and heal in a very deep, fundamental, spiritual way. And Northern Ireland needs that. It needs the Lyric Theatre.'
