Following on from the record-breaking success of his play The History Of The Troubles (accordin' to my Da), audiences will be able to hear in person a collection of side-splitting stories, packed with some of the maddest, baddest and funniest Belfast characters ever to step behind a barricade; Meet Fireball-the nutty-hospital-porter: Willie Lagan the country and western singer: Tomata the Catholic Defender: Bonzo McGaughey the Loyalist roof top protestor, and many, many more.

The show has sold out at venues all over Northern Ireland, including the Lyric Theatre, so a good response is expected for this show, to will be followed by traditional music.
