In the Pavilion Theatre, Dún Laoghaire, on Saturday June 17th, there will be a live theatre tour of the Bruiser Theatre Company’s critically-acclaimed production of Mojo Mickybo by Belfast playwright, Owen McCafferty, writes Alex Greaney.
Mojo Mickybo shows the friendship between two boys growing up in Belfast – a friendship that at first is immune to the sectarian violence taking place around them, but which nonetheless is ultimately destroyed by it.
Mojo Mickybo unsentimentally portrays a kind of innocence betrayed by communal hatred, showing the harsh absurdity of sectarianism. Our young heroes, Mojo and Mickybo, represent the division of a benighted country that has spent a century at war with itself.
Tickets are available for €22. You can book a seat at: www.paviliontheatre.ie/events/view/mojo-mickybo
