This exciting new show from Greenshoot Productions chronicles the extraordinary life of The Guildford Four's Gerry Conlon following his release from prison in 1989.

Who will ever forget the tv images of a wild-eyed, fist-pumping man, storming up to a bank of microphones outside The Old Bailey, proclaiming to the world "I am a totally innocent man".

The story of what happened next and what kind of man that emerged from 14 years of soul-destroying imprisonment is simply the stuff of legend.  Conlon seemed to have it all but away from the glamour, fuelled by an addiction to crack cocaine, his life was spiralling out of control. 

What emerges from the darkness is his resilience and eventual life-changing recovery to become a world renowned human rights campaigner.

Written by Gerry's lifelong friend Richard O'Rawe and Martin Lynch, the play explores triumph of the human spirit over extreme adversity. A great story of hope.

 Tickets £16/£14
