Bold Girls

Citizens Theatre

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.

Hilariously dark and dry, analysing the futility of life at its end. Recognising the silly dance of repetition in each enduring day; the absurdly funny three-legged fake dog and play on words which offered the two funniest lines in the entire play was too subtle for most. Therein lies the deepest humour. The awareness of what lies ahead for many offers each member of the audience some moments for deep reflection, should they wish to take it. Clever and keeps you wondering (are you sure you have it figured out?). Left wanting to see it again! Excellent performances all round.

Hi I went to see The Rifles with my school when it was out it was a brilliant play and the music was brilliant really got me moving but I was wondering if you have released the rest of the album on soundcloud or anything like that just to sing to in my spare time thanks.

Just back from the matinee performance of Endgame. Knew nothing of the play prior to my visit. A thoroughly enjoyable experience, superb acting, especially the comedic timing from Chris Gascoyne. You could analyse every word and gesture or just enjoy the wonderful experience of live theater expertly executed. A huge thank you to all involved.

The performances of Neilson and Gascoyne were absolutely incredible. Even if you failed to grasp some aspects of the play, I couldn't help to be engaged by the two leads. The play was destructively dark with an edge of humour. Heart-stopping stuff. Loved it.

Absolutely amazing performances from everyone. Much funnier than I thought it was going to be, in a dark way of course. I thoroughly enjoyed Endgame and would highly recommend it. I left the theatre thinking "I could easily go and see this again".

I loved the show! I studied Beckett in English at school and have been a big fan since. I wrote a review of Endgame at Citizens on my blog. You can read a snippet below: 'Hill’s fresh adaptation of Endgame is funnier, better paced, more thoughtful, and strangely beautiful compared to previous interpretations. While the classic grim play finds light in the dark and inspires numerous belly laughs, Endgame has also left this Glasgow audience with an overthinking-induced sore head as well as a sore heart...'

Hi John, we recommend Rapunzel for everyone aged over 6 years. There is brand new pop-punk music performed live on stage by the cast, with Honeyblood drummer Cat Myers on drums. As with all of our festive productions, Rapunzel is a very theatrical show with an engaging story - we hope that your family will love it!

At the other end of the family scale, is there enough artistic material & themes in Rapunzel to hold the attention of teenagers (15, 13)? Or is it more of a younger kids show?

Cannot praise this production highly enough. Thank you for a most memorable evening. Choked up at "Most of Me". The only disappointment, no cd of the music available to buy!

Loved the show! Would go back in a second! Such a great story that captures so much in one play, amazing songs and vocals from the actors. The staging, lighting, costumes were all perfect for this musical. This really is a must see production!
