Blinkered is a powerful play that addresses the very important issue of mental health and suicide in young people. Following the show’s successful tour in 2016/2017, Sole Purpose are planning a second tour of Northern Ireland in areas where suicide rates are at a high level such as Derry~Londonderry and North Belfast.
The show will be delivered in partnership with the Samaritans and counsellors will be available at each performance, if any audience members would like to discuss the issues raised in the play.
Sole Purpose Productions are seeking an investment of £5-£7K to support the production and expand its reach.
On 12 January this year, the curtain came down on the last performance of the pantomime, and the doors to the Grand Opera House were opened to teams of architects, engineers, theatre consultants, builders, designers and conservation experts. A 10-month, £12.2 million restoration and development of the Grand Opera House is now underway, aiming to bring this historic Theatre back to its spectacular best in time for its 125th birthday in December 2020.
The Grand Opera House would like to introduce new opportunities for partnership with the corporate sector upon its reopening in November this year. All opportunities will be approached in a individual way and can be completely tailored to meet the needs of the organisation in order to develop a mutually beneficial relationship.

Between October 2011 and April 2012 Big Telly Theatre Company delivered Operation Blitzed in 16 post primary schools in the Coleraine, Cookstown and Magherafelt district council areas, and in addition to the Magherafelt Campus of Northern Regional College. The main aim of the project was to raise awareness among young people including teachers and staff as to the consequences of alcohol consumption by young people.
The project included a piece of invisible theatre delivered in each of the schools. Each event involved two actors who were dressed in the relevant school uniform. Actors delivered their scripted drama in the main assembly hall of the college unannounced as if the incident was taking place in real life.
Following the drama the school’s principal made the same scripted announcement explaining the context of the drama and its purpose in raising awareness as to the consequences of alcohol consumption by young people.
The pupils were then involved in a series of workshops facilitated by the actors to ascertain the degree of impact the drama had on pupils and any significant impact it had on their attitudes to alcohol consumption.
Following the success of the Operation Blitzed, Big Telly Theatre Company are seeking sponsorship to run the show and workshops again.
