Belfast in the early 1990s. Against a backdrop of gunfire and police raids, four women whose lives have been turned upside down by the Troubles, carry on with everyday life.
But what starts out as a riotous night out, leads to the spilling of some very sobering truths in the early hours.
Packed with abrasive humour, Bold Girls is a story of love, friendship and betrayal.
Rona Munro, whose trilogy The James Plays - written for the National Theatre of Scotland - was a recent international hit, burst onto the scene in 1991 with this celebration of women’s lives in West Belfast.

"a quartet of beautifully realised performances"
- The Herald
"at the heart of the production's success, though, lies a quartet of terrific, perfectly-pitched performances"
- The Scotsman
"Poignant tale of female survival"
- The Times
“Is the play dated? Sadly not. It’s women just telling their stories, still fighting the fight, which is heightened right now. It’s simply serendipity that we’re doing it when all of this has started to come out."
Deirdre Davis talks to the Sunday Post
"Bold Girls is less a “Troubles play” and more a witty, abrasive take on relationships"
Scarlett Mack in The National
“It’s a story about a marriage and a group of friendships that gets challenged by the idea of the past crashing into the present,”
Lucianne McEvoy in the Evening Times
