Event description
Bruiser Theatre Company is proud to present the critically-acclaimed Mojo Mickybo by Belfast playwright, Owen McCafferty.

About this event

Online Theatre Production

Starring Michael Condron (Game of Thrones, HBO; Doing Money, BBC) and Terry Keeley (The Ferryman, West End and Broadway; Derry Girls, Channel 4/Netflix)

“Belfast. The summer of 1970. The heat’s meltin’ the tarmac on the street, the buses are burning bright and punters are drinking petrol outta milk bottles.”

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, building huts, spitting from cinema balconies and re-enacting their favourite movie, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. They are young cowboys in the making, with the violence of The Troubles only obliquely impacting on them – until finally their friendship is destroyed in a way that they only later come to understand. 

This is pure, undiluted storytelling in Bruiser’s trademark dynamic physical style. Fast-paced, darkly funny and action-packed. Directed by Bruiser's Artistic Director, Lisa May.

Despite venues remaining closed due to the ongoing pandemic, Bruiser are keeping theatre alive and accessible by releasing the production online.
