Roll-up, roll-up, and enter the shady world of Delaney’s Travelling Roadshow. Step inside the boxing ring… smell it, sense it, feel it. And somewhere between the fights and the fortune-tellers, the bookies and the bloodshed, rub shoulders with its wayward wards. Set in rural Ireland in the early 60s, Lay Me Down Softly takes us inside the darkly comic and colourful world of the old travelling carnival.
Lyric Theatre Belfast presents The Absence Of Women, by Owen McCafferty, from 13 Sep to 8 Oct 2011. Directed by Rachel O’Riordan, designed by Stuart Marshall, lighting by James Whiteside, sound by Ivan Birthistle and Vincent Doherty. Gerry and Iggy, two labourers from Belfast face the end of their lives in a London hostel, talking of the present and thinking of the past.
