Blood. Honour your blood. Be true to it. Be true to them. Be true to yourself.
Hold tight as you are thrown into New York City’s deep and dark underworld, in this exciting new play on the Abbey stage.
Man has just set foot on the moon. The streets of Brooklyn are tense. The Irish Mafia is desperately trying to hold on to their power and more importantly their identity. After all, THEY built these streets. In this edgy new story, relationships between family, friends and enemies are ultimately challenged.
This world premiere continues our commitment to present new writing to Irish audiences. Drum Belly brings together two international theatre artists, each making their Abbey Theatre debut. Writer Richard Dormer, well known for his performance in Hurricane, which he wrote and starred in, is joined by Sean Holmes, Artistic Director of the Lyric Hammersmith.
