What's On / Shows /
Following on from the success of Huzzies, Tinderbox returns to the MAC this Spring with a witty and ambitious new play by Rosemary Jenkinson.
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.
Tinderbox Theatre Company has created over forty world premiere productions, exploring topical stories and cutting edge styles, with Northern Ireland’s leading playwrights and theatre artists.
