The Soldier's Song

Tuesday, 19 March, 1996

The acting is quite superb, particularly by Anne Carroll who plays Irene McManus(Mother) and Billy Carter who plays Eamon McManus(The Son). Also good, although she played a small part , is Mary Macleod who plays May McFarlane a friend of the family whose child was killed by terrorists some years ago.

The play touches on some sensitive issues and tries to show how life is like for Catholics under these conditions in Belfast. John Dove the director succeeded in this without being too dramatic and too violent. This is a play well worth seeing.
