After a sell-out run last summer the smash-hit musical Paperboy is back!

It’s 1975 and 12-year-old Tony dutifully goes about his paper round. Belfast in the seventies is like the newspapers he delivers: everything is black and white, albeit Orange and Green. There are bombings on the evening news, but Paperboy is more interested in Doctor Who, the Bay City Rollers and outer space, and of course, Sharon Burgess.

Paperboy is a heart-warming, coming-of-age, new musical drama that bubbles with humour; set against the backdrop of 1970s Belfast on the Upper Shankill Road. Based on the much-loved memoir by Irish writer and peace builder Tony Macaulay, and adapted for musical stage, with music from platinum-selling Belfast artist Duke Special and writing by stand-up comedian Andrew Doyle.
