This play stars popular local actor Stephen Slowey, so we hope to see good local support for him.
Balor Rep Theatre Company present the latest hilarious new comedy from the pen of Belfast playwright Marie Jones, the Olivier Award winning author of Stones in His Pockets, Dancing Feet : The George Best Story and Women on The Verge of HRT. InFly Me to The Moon, which enjoyed a hugely successful recent run at the Gaiety Theatre, Frances and Loretta are community care visitors who look after 84 year old Davey, a lonely old man who lives for his Frank Sinatra records and his modest weekly bet on the horses. But when Davey dies unexpectedly, having just enjoyed the biggestwin of his life, an amazing possibility presents itself to the two cash-strapped women. After all, they are the only ones who know of Davey’s good fortune and he never made it to the bookies to collect his winnings!
