Mojo Mickybo, Saturday, 3rd of Jun, at 8pm, tickets 18 euro
Set in Belfast over the summer of 1970, Mojo and his mate Mickybo are two nine-year-old boys from opposing sides of the sectarian divide. They are ‘thick as two small thieves’, playing headers, being mouthy, and spitting from cinema balconies with the violence of The Troubles only obliquely impacting on them – until finally their friendship is destroyed by it. This is pure storytelling with Bruiser’s dynamic physicality.
Winner of ‘Best Ensemble’ and Nominated for ‘Best Director’ at the Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards, 2022, Mojo Mickybo has received outstanding audience feedback and critical acclaim across the board.
