The Play's The Thing
★★★★ Theatre Weekly ★★★★ I Thank You Theatre
★★★★ Breaking the Fourth Wall
Sas and Monty are trapped in this place, and in their heads. From the working men’s to Monty’s empty flat, their only escape comes from playing The Game; where they can be bin men hiding stolen cash under the mattress, seagulls snatching dogs on the high street, or just themselves, free at last, knocking back breakfast cocktails on a sunny beach in Jamaica.
But Sas doesn’t want to play anymore. He wants to talk. About girls, his head and that summer they can’t forget.
Rich in the language of Belfast, and with an original electronic score, Jade City is a lyrical and powerful exploration of growing up and growing apart, about the choices we make and the only choices we have.
