Until the giant Millennium Forum opens in Derry in September 2001, An Grianan remains the biggest venue for the arts in the north west. Since the theatre opened in 1999, the programme has evolved into a thoughtful range of items, with Beckett interpretations, Irish acoustic/folk music, comedy, classical music and panto often sharing the same month's billing. The plays of Donegal playwright Brian Friel (Dancing at Lughnasa) are frequently staged.

This light-hearted yet informed guide will also provide specific and unusual insights into the tumultuous history of the city.

Republican Murals: 68-96

This is a mural highlighting the predominance of politics and sectarian history in Northern Ireland. An orange-sashed RUC officer beats to the ground an unarmed resister, while beside him a soldier in full riot uniform also raises his baton. They are dark figures against a white backdrop, skeletal-like, the policeman's attire and mustache reminiscent of Nazi forms and symbolism. This was painted in 1996, and underscores the importance of symbols and emblems here.
