Kind Words Spoken

“Lusciously theatrical….  Everyday I Wake up Hopeful is a funny, sad, touching paean to the profundity of supposedly small lives and small thoughts.” CultureHub Magazine 

"A hugely kinetic ride through those highs and lows, a superb blend of social and cultural observation." The Digital Fix on East Belfast Boy 

"DJ Phil Kieran has mixed an incessantly pounding techno soundscape, which perfectly tees up Oona Doherty’s trademark gritty choreography.” The Even Hand on East Belfast Boy

Following on from the overwhelming success of their internationally award-winning production of Stacey Gregg’s Scorch and 4 wins at the 2018 Irish Times Theatre Awards for Red (Best Production, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Set Design) Prime Cut Productions are back at the Project Arts Centre with their critically acclaimed Double Bill of Fintan Brady’s East Belfast Boy and John Patrick Higgins’ Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful.

East Belfast Boy by Fintan Brady

Meet Davy. The things he sees. His streets. His mates. His girl and… The Boys. With pumping techno, pulverising movement and street sharp poetry, East Belfast Boy is a rollercoaster ride and a cliché-free zone.

“It is what it is. It’s hard to say what it is… It’s just you know… What it is…. 110%”

Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful by John Patrick Higgins

Malachy has made a decision, perhaps for the first time in his life. Tonight is the night.
He has six bottles of wine, a bucket of chicken and he wants to talk about it. He really wants to talk about it.

Poignant and confessional – Every Day I Wake Up Hopeful is also desperately funny. Funny to the bone.
