Escaping the Irish famine 1850, onboard a ship bound from Belfast to Sydney. Five young women seek to become “mistresses of their own destiny.”
But some find they cannot escape the nightmare of the lives they are leaving behind. As they draw nearer to the promised land, their connection to the past grows ever more powerful, eliciting rage, love, despair, and above all, hope.
Directed for Bardic Theatre by Bugsy McMahon, ‘Belfast Girls’ contains strong language and adult themes.
Presented by one of Northern Ireland’s leading amateur theatre groups.
