Summertime by David Ireland

September 24, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

| Free

Jonathan is struggling to establish himself as the minister in a working class east Belfast parish.  One night a young man stumbles into his office, covered in blood, and claiming that he is possessed by the devil.

When he delves deeper into the young man’s story, Jonathan finds himself coming under increasing suspicion from the local community.   As things spiral out of control, he must make a life or death decision about who he can trust.

David Ireland won both the Meyer Whitworth Award and the Stewart Parker Radio Drama Award for his last Tinderbox play, Everything Between Us.

Tinderbox Theatre Company is based in Belfast. Formed in 1988, it is one of Northern Ireland’s longest established and most respected independent theatre companies. Tinderbox is dedicated to new writing for the theatre, the playwrights who create it, and the artistic environment in which its work takes place. In David Ireland’s play, first produced by Tinderbox in 2013, unusually high summer temperatures are having a disturbing effect on a young man’s troubled mind.
