Mind Adventures is proud to present ‘Better Than Ever Before’ co written and directed by  Mind Adventures, Associate Artistic Director, Arun Welandawe-Prematilleke and Northern Irish theatre artiste Alice Malseed.

The British Council Sri Lanka alongside the Arts Council of Northern Ireland have worked together to bring these two artists, both graduates of Goldsmiths College, together to create a play that examines the realities of contemporary Sri Lanka and Belfast.

Loosely adapted from Irish mythology and the Mahavamsa, the play uses our histories as a springboard to examine young people living in post-conflict cities, and their disconnection from the world around them. Set around a multi-storey apartment complex, the denizens in and around the building each lend a window into their lives as Kings and Queens of their own private kingdoms. ‘Better Than Ever Before’ runs from July 13 to 16 at the British Council Library. Tickets available at the venue and on
