Two actors perform seventeen parts in this fast paced, poetic and colourful play by award winning writer
Owen McCafferty .
It offers a child’s-eye view of 1970s Belfast during one long, hot summer, when every day is a new
adventure. Mojo and Mickybo are childhood friends who forge a friendship over a shared love for the film
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, a defiance of the local gang led by “Gank the Wank” and a mania for
making dens and digging to Australia, rolling down hills and avoiding their parents spitting bullets at each
But while the children are busy having mock shoot-outs, the adults are warring for real. Whether it is the
verbal bullets that fly between Mojo’s parents or the real war that is taking place on the streets of Belfast.
Events from the adult world bring reality crashing into a world of myth and make believe.
This is a glorious, vivid play full of verbal swagger. Beneath its exuberance is a deep sadness for the
blindness of sectarianism, the loss of innocence and how all heroes, even your father, fall in the end.
