Bold Girls

Bold Girls

By Rona Munro


Written in 1991, this play reflects the dramas of everyday life in Belfast – burning buses, road blocks, gunfire. But these are off-stage events in this stirring play about the lives of three women whose men have been killed or imprisoned for their political activism but where bread must still be bought between explosions.


Set in Marie’s kitchen, ordinary life goes on, with risks being taken to visit a nightclub, but the appearance of a disturbing young girl threatens Marie’s carefully structured widowhood and too many drinks shows Cassie’s rebelling in the cold light of dawn. In spite of its chilling theme there are many humorous and heart-warming moments. This is a play about people, not politics.


“...the story of love, friendship and betrayal could be set anywhere.” (Mail on Sunday)


“Rona Munro’s ear for the authentic cut and thrust of Belfast’s unsung heroines is sharp, abrasive and at times, downright painful….It is also celebratory and funny” (Daily Mail)


Directed by Don Hirst, performances will be at 7.45pm on 6th – 13th May, 2017.


Please note there will be no performance on Friday 5th May.
