Londonderry unveils city of culture program
LONDON (AP) — The city of Londonderry in Northern Ireland has announced a program of arts events ranging from punk to painting to celebrate its role as the U.K.'s "city of culture" for 2013.
The program announced Thursday includes a new play by U.S. writer Sam Shepard staged by Field Day, the innovative local theater company founded in 1980 by playwright Brian Friel and actor Stephen Rea.
Other stage offerings include "Teenage Kicks," a punk musical inspired by local rock heroes The Undertones. The city will also host an exhibition for art's Turner Prize, performances by the London Symphony Orchestra and a visit from the Royal Ballet.
The U.K. city of culture project is inspired by the successful continent-wide European Capital of Culture program. Londonderry is the first city to hold the title.
