The MAC, Belfast

Meet Alice – Stormont’s only Green MLA.  She plans to save Northern Ireland from the influence of big corporations, while at home she hopes a new baby will save her marriage.  Her husband Martin is a controversial historian who is secretly planning an explosive new book, while his boss Danny is fighting to secure funding for his victim support centre.  When their friend Claire unexpectedly re-enters their lives, the past and the future are set to collide spectacularly right over Belfast.

Planet Belfast is a witty and ambitious new play by Rosemary Jenkinson about the choices we make for the public good versus our own private gain.
