Written by Rosemary Jenkinson (White Star of the North, The Bonefire, Johnny Meister and the Stitch) Basra Boy features the award-winning John Travers (Good Vibrations, Song For A Raggy Boy, From The Shipyard to the Somme) who recreates his acclaimed central performance.
Speedy and Stig have been best friends since their first slingshots and proudly march with the East Sons Of Ulster flute band…but now Stig wants to leave Speedy’s dead-end streetfights to fight in Afghanistan. What will become of this friendship forged in the backstreets of Belfast?
In this extraordinary high-octane, rollercoaster piece of theatre, we are propelled through the ups and downs of two young boys poised on the cusp of adulthood.
