“Two frank solo shows, East Belfast Boy and Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful, depict male crises with heart, humour and hip-hop” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Guardian
Following on from the overwhelming success of their internationally award-winning production of Stacey Gregg’s Scorch and 4 wins at the 2018 Irish Times Theatre Awards for Red (Best Production, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Set Design), Prime Cut Productions are back with their critically acclaimed double bill of Fintan Brady’s East Belfast Boy and John Patrick Higgins’ Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful.
“A hugely kinetic ride through those highs and lows, a superb blend of social and cultural observation.” — THE DIGITAL FIX ON EAST BELFAST BOY
East Belfast Boy
Meet Davy. The things he sees. His streets. His mates. His girl and… the boys. With pumping techno, pulverising movement and street sharp poetry, East Belfast Boy is a rollercoaster ride and a cliché-free zone.
Written by Fintan Brady
“Lusciously theatrical…. Everyday I Wake up Hopeful is a funny, sad, touching paean to the profundity of supposedly small lives and small thoughts.” — CULTUREHUB MAGAZINE
Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful
Malachy has made a decision, perhaps for the first time in his life. Tonight is the night.
He has six bottles of wine, a bucket of chicken and he wants to talk about it. He really wants to talk about it.
Poignant and confessional Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful is also desperately funny. Funny to the bone.
