Marie-Louise Muir and the team with a round-up from the world of arts and culture.

As the Belfast International Arts Festival kicks off, Marie-Louise Muir takes us behind the scenes of Northern Ireland's only full-time producing theatre, the Lyric, to get a taste of acclaimed local playwright Owen McCafferty's new production, Fire Below (A War of Worlds). Exploring contemporary life in a post-conflict society, Marie-Louise meets McCafferty and director Jimmy Fay as they work with their cast in rehearsal.

From there, Marie-Louise takes us off the beaten track to discover the Belfast theatre groups working outside the mainstream and taking on stereotypes through radical new work. Writer and director Martin Lynch tells us about the new project which finds him working with members of the LGBTQ community, refugees, and those involved in women's rights.

And, in the company of critic Alan Meban, writer and producer Conor Mitchell, and Niamh Flanagan of Theatre NI, Marie-Louise considers whether it is possible for a smaller city outside of London to establish a good working relationship between critics and practitioners.

The Playhouse20171226

Michael Bradley uncovers the rich history of Derry's Playhouse theatre.

Michael Bradley tells the remarkable story of the Playhouse theatre in Derry, which grew from founder Pauline Ross's vision of a 'house of play' for the people of the North West. They started out with just £300, and went on to become one of the leading arts organisations in the UK and Ireland. Along the way, they've created ground-breaking theatre projects, given a platform to innovative music and dance projects and introduced generation after generation of young people to the arts, surviving the odd eviction notice along the way. The world famous playwright, actor and director Sam Shepherd premiered 'Particle of Dread' here in 2013, SOAK played her first ever gig here, and it was home to the late Sister Aloysius McVeigh, recognised as one of the world's leading icon painters. In this Arts Show special, Michael Bradley tours the building from the front door right up to the attic - and everywhere in between. As he meets the huge cast of characters who work and play in every room of the Playhouse, from the caretaker (and playwright) Gregory Peck to the passionate and driven founder Pauline Ross, Michael also delves into the BBC radio archive to celebrate some key moments from the theatre's rich history. Michael hears stories of lives changed forever by a brush with the arts, and pays tribute to one of our great cultural success stories - The Playhouse theatre.
