Belltable | Fri, Feb 15th | 8pm | €18/€16 – 2 shows, 1 ticket.


Following on from the overwhelming success of their internationally award-winning production of Stacey Gregg’s Scorch and 4 wins at the 2018 Irish Times Theatre Awards for Red (Best Production, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Set Design) Prime Cut Productions are back at Belltable with their critically acclaimed Double Bill of Fintan Brady’s East Belfast Boy  and John Patrick Higgins’ Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful.

East Belfast Boy by Fintan Brady

Meet Davy.  The things he sees. His streets. His mates. His girl and… The Boys.  With pumping techno, pulverising movement and street sharp poetry, East Belfast Boy is a rollercoaster ride and a cliché-free zone. ‘It is what it is. It’s hard to say what it is… It’s just you know… What it is…. 110%’

Directed by Emma Jordan | Choreography by Oona Doherty | Sound Design by Phil Kieran

Suitable for Age 14+ (Age 12 with parental consent)
A hugely kinetic ride through those highs and lows, a superb blend of social and cultural observation.” The Digital Fix
“a magical and sad slice of life of youth on the dole.” **** British Theatre Guide
Ryan McParland is superb as Davy **** Fringe Guru

Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful by John Patrick Higgins

Malachy has made a decision, perhaps for the first time in his life. Tonight is the night. He has six bottles of wine, a bucket of chicken and he wants to talk about it. He really wants to talk about it. Poignant and confessional Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful is also desperately funny. Funny to the bone.

Directed by Rhiann Jeffrey | Set & Light Design by Ciaran Bagnall and Sarah Jane Sheils

Suitable for Age 14+ (Age 12 with parental consent)
Lusciously theatrical….  Everyday I Wake up Hopeful is a funny, sad, touching paean to the profundity of supposedly small lives and small thoughts.” CultureHub Magazine
The juxtaposition of easy humour and smoothly articulated sorrow illustrates (sometimes uneasily) how so many of us manage to hide emotional turmoil under the surface. The Deadhead
