‘Chronicles of Long Kesh’

Martin Lynch’s play, ‘The Chronicles of Long Kesh’, has gone down a storm at the Edinburgh Fringe and negotiations are taking place for further productions of the drama which covers life in the notorious prison from the time it opened in September 1971, through to its failed renaming by the British as ‘The Maze’, the hunger strikes of 1980 and 1981, and the eventual release of the political prisoners under the Belfast [Good Friday] Agreement.
