Who in their right mind would go out taxi-ing on a Christmas Eve if they didn't have to? You're looking at him - Belfast taxi man Mackers is driving the last cab in the entire city on Christmas Eve. He has no choice but to keep his head while all around are losing theirs - drinking themselves into oblivion and having family rows in a way that we do during this season of good will. The dark side of Christmas that lurks beneath the tinsel and happy families is hilariously and poignantly revealed.
Danske Bank Stage
Ulster's most dysfunctional TV family.
They'll all be there, Ma, Da, Cal, Dympna, Billy, Uncle Andy and the lovably menacing Pastor Begbie (Paddy Jenkins). Da is planning a spectacular commemoration of the 1916 Rising - unless Ma drags him over to London to meet the Queen to pick up her OBE. Uncle Andy digs in to Ulster's glorious past only to find out that his great-great-Uncle Andy was known as the Coward of the Kneebreakers who spent the entire First World War hiding in the attic of Ulster's dodgiest drinking den. Expect a laugh out loud show with topical humour, up to the minute satire, and stand-up from Tim McGarry.
A peaceful tale of bombings, guns, punishment beatings and riots. Lots of riots. Meet Karen Reid, an East Belfast community worker trying to navigate her way through the uneasy peace; from the 1994 ceasefires and Good Friday Agreement to the Chuckle brothers and flag protests. Things get even more bizarre when she meets a darts-playing looper, Fireball, from ?the other side'. While Karen fervently believes in a new Northern Ireland, some of her nearest and dearest aren't so keen. She soon realises that sometimes to win peace, you must be a warrior.
From the team who brought you The History of the Troubles...Accordin' to my Da comes the belting new comedy, The History of the Peace...Accordin' to my Ma!

When Inspector Goole calls unexpectedly on the prosperous Birling family investigating the suicide of a poor young local woman his startling revelations shatter the very foundation of their lives. As the Inspector asks insinuating questions it becomes clear that they all bear guilt for the destruction of the woman they have variously exploited for cheap labour, cheap sex and worse - And then the plot thickens. Written at the end of the second World War and set before the first, An Inspector Calls is a brilliantly compelling and haunting thriller.
On a midsummer's night Hermia and her lover Lysander flee from Athens and Demetrius - the man Hermia's father favours as a son-in-law.

On the same night Bottom and his friends leave Athens to find somewhere quiet to rehearse their play which is to be performed at the wedding feast of Duke Theseus. Drawn into the woods they enter a world of magic, mystery and wonder.
