Set in the aftermath of the Good Friday Agreement, Belfast Girl: A Love Story considers the human dimension of the Northern Ireland question, and uncovers the personal costs of political struggle. Annie is the Belfast Girl of the title: a working class protestant who grew up during the troubles. Her marriage to Orangeman Billy is on the rocks, and an unexpected visit from English Catholic Dave, her childhood sweetheart who she hasn’t seen since her teens, brings matters to a head in an explosive manner. The play is written and directed by John Dunne, and features Mary Tynan as Annie and Ian Macnaughton as Dave.
