Carnaross Drama Group bring their hilarious farce set in the North around the time of the IRA ceasefire to the community centre stage for a six night run this month, starting this weekend.
Penned by Vivian Brennan, ‘No Hope Here’ features streetwise householder Rab Devlin has been mis-using housing benefit and now fears detection. In order to avoid having to repay grant money and possibly going to jail, he hatches a plan to claim intimidation.
Unfortunately for Rab the Loyalists, the Republicans and the RUC are all keen to keep their PR in good order. They all decide to offer him protection. Add to the mix, the Housing Executive, who are eager to help out and Rab’s drinking buddies, who muster volunteers to offer protection and you have a potential confrontation of near-nuclear proportions when all assemble in Rab’s home and fantasy and reality finally collide.
This is a light-hearted look at Belfast people who know how to laugh at themselves. A must see!
‘No Hope Here’ plays Carnaross Community Centre on February 9-11 and February 16-18, show starts 8pm nightly. Tickets €12.50. Booking office: 087 0554 158.
