Bold Girls

Set in troubled Belfast when roadblocks, gunfire and shootings were part of everyday life, Bold Girls tells the story of three women whose husbands have been killed or imprisoned for their political activities. Their bonds of friendship and family ties, crucial to their survival, are shattered by the arrival of a mysterious young girl who disrupts their lives, unveiling well-hidden truths.

Rona Munro’s award winning play is about people not politics and is full of heartwarming and humorous moments - a play about friendship, loyalty, laughter, betrayal, hate and love.

Bold Girls explores the lives of four Belfast women revealing the complex relationships and the lies and betrayal that fester beneath. Cassie, Marie and Nora’s lives will never be the same again after the arrival of Deirdre, a teenage girl whose very presence has a devastating effect on the other three women.

This amateur production of “Bold Girls" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
