  I would love to see interior pictures of this theatre and all the others in Belfast, sadly there dos'nt seem to be many at all.

S.S. `Esso Ulidia` shortly after being floated out of the new building dock at Harland & Wolff, Belfast in 1970. At 250,000dwt she was the largest ship to have been built in Belfast and the first ship built in the new building dock.  :)

Kind of ironic with those lovely old electric trams, they were eventually taken out of use because they were considered to be out of date and inefficient, but they were so environmentally friendly !,... they were actually ahead of their time !,... and now they want to try and create electrically powered road transport. !

Well perhaps this isn't the time or the place to refer to it or to mention it, and I'm not trying to float any of your boats,... no pun intended  ::)  ,... but since it has already been recently mentioned, I'll mention it again in a different context,... and anyway, anything to do with the great James Ellis is always worth a mention,... and ditto in respect of Adrian Dunbar.

It's kind of ironic that what happened on the opening night of the play in London was curiously, if symbolically, analagous to the situation in the Belfast shipyards that the play was portraying, but James and Adrian will tell you about that for themselves.
