Martin Lynch is a terrific playwright.

I would suggest the title of this one is based on a songtitle by Morrissey.

Irish Blood, English Heart, in reverse

The play was brilliant stickleback, loved every minute of it. It was based on a book by Liam Harte actually from his own experiences.    I got to meet both Martin and Liam.  By a strange coincidence, my daughter who knew I was going to the play, texted me just as I was leaving saying "Mum, Liam Harte was my lecturer at uni" !!  I was behind him in the queue for a drink and showed him her text and we had a lovely chat. My brother knew Martin so I met him too, all in all it was a lovely evening :-)

 Great to hear that a Belfast playwright has this play performed in London....which theatre was it in Astor.  ;)
I'm patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it ...

It was in Camden Irish Centre sj.  It was also in Belfast about a month ago and in  Manchester.  I hope you're well  :-*

In terms of a good night out that takes some beating, Astor  ;)
