A Lyric Theatre Production based on the award winning film: Good Vibrations
“New York has the haircuts, London has the trousers, but Belfast has the reason!”
Good Vibrations tells the story of Terri Hooley, a radical, rebel and music-lover in 1970s Belfast. When the conflict shuts down his city, and all his friends take sides and take up arms, Terri opens a record shop on ‘the most bombed half-mile in Europe’ and calls it Good Vibrations. Through it he discovers a compelling voice of resistance in the city’s underground punk scene. Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an alternative Ulster, and to bring his city back to life.
‘Good Vibrations is as intense and big-hearted as Terri Hooley himself.’ The Irish News
It has been adapted for the stage by the same writing team behind the film biopic – Colin Carberry and Glenn Patterson – for which the pair were nominated for Outstanding Debut at the 2014 BAFTA Film awards.
Credits: Written by Colin Carberry and Glenn Patterson; Directed by Des Kennedy
“Hooley’s life story has been told on film, in his book and now on the stage – and what a night Wednesday’s opening night was. Of course, his fans were out in force but there were many Lyric regulars who admitted losing their hearts to this fascinating character” – The Irish News
“Joy may be a surprising word to describe a bunch of pogo-ing punks playing their 100-mile-an-hour music, but it’s the right word to describe the atmosphere at the Lyric for the opening night of Good Vibrations.” – Belfast Telegraph
“Sometimes you watch a piece of theatre and you just know you are witnessing something special, something everyone should see, and Good Vibrations is just that.This is exactly how theatre should leave you feeling – uplifted and wanting to punch the air in excitement. A show good for the soul.’ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ – Belfast Live
“Good Vibrations is one of those unmissable productions that comes along once in a blue moon and the Lyric have played a blinder opening their Autumn season with one of the most exciting shows to take to their stage in a long time.”- No More Workhorse
This event is a part of the Earagail Arts Festival – 18 days of music, theatre, visual arts, film, literature, circus & carnival on Ireland’s North West Atlantic seaboard from 9 to 26 July 2020.
