Minute After Midday

Pared-down performance based on Omagh bombing

Pared-down performances resonate here as three very different stories are told, in overlapping monologues, from the day the Omagh bombing devastated Ireland. A young survivor, a widow, and the driver who left the car bomb on Lower Market Street, relive the moments before and after the attack, to poignant effect.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 622 6552, until 29 Aug (not 16), 1.30pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7.50–£8.50).
