First Call, Last Call
Wednesday 24 March 1999
BURIED UNDER some painful memories, the emotional friction between two men is left to simmer for twenty years. The severing of a childhood friendship leaves not only a cauldron of hatred but also a legacy of betrayal. Face to face in a soon to be demolished church, two Irish men confront painful memories of their childhood days in North London. Sacred Heart, written by award-winning playwright Mick Mahoney and directed by Edward Hall, promises a challenging and intriguing evening.

LAURYN HILL (right), actress, songwriter and now solo artist, plays two shows this summer. Not only a member of the biggest-selling rap group of all time, Lauryn Hill has built on the success of The Fugees and is now a five times Grammy award-winner with her debut solo album. Fugee cohorts Prakazrel "Pras" Michel and Wyclef Jean, have also gone on to produce their own material, but The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, stands out as rap music at its most eclectic.
