Covenanters in Newtownards - Saturday 9 May

If you're in the vicinity, make a point of being at these events. This is the last opportunity to see the drama (at least until further dates and events are planned):

The drama lasts for about 30 minutes, and features Robert Blair, Alexander Peden and David Houston, as well as a fictional couple called Andrew and Sarah.

The events are being managed by the congregation of Newtownards Reformed Presbyterian Church, and are part of the overall "Covenanters in Ulster" project that I was privileged to be involved in over the past 18 months.
