West Belfast meets East (Middle-East that is) in this new hard-hitting, dangerous comedy by Belfast writer Pearse Elliott.
Azir, a political refugee, comes here to escape a life of persecution only to find himself right back where he started. He gets taken advantage of by Duff, a local drug enforcer, and gets dragged into a life of crime from which he tries to escape.
However, Azir is not the only victim of Duff’s sociopathic behaviour as Duff’s impressionable protégées Cricky and Lala are also led down a path of delusional dreams and idealistic dead ends.
Award winning Pearse Elliott and Rawlife theatre company have a proven track record of presenting edgy, dark but funny theatre about modern life as in ‘As the Tide Ebbs’; ‘Septic Tiger’ and ‘The Christening’.
You will not want to miss this black comedy about how idealism and the struggle for freedom can lead to many different places, some hopeful but others violent.
Please note this performance contains flashing/strobe lighting, strong language, adult concepts, drugs and violence.
