Overview

sit on the deck - have a few drinks put the world to rights - and watch working-class protestants burn some tyres and sticks and shout some shit - if that can't make a middle-class ex-catholic happy what can

Twenty years on from the Belfast Peace Agreement, Tom and Maggie are enjoying a glass of wine or two on Gerry and Rosemary's deck, waiting for the Eleventh Night bonfire to be lit in the estate below. But there is tension in the air; and what these neighbours of old think of one another, truly, feels just one unguarded moment away on this hot summer's night.

A companion piece to Owen McCafferty's play Quietly, Fire Below (A War of Words) was a co-production between the Lyric Theatre and the Abbey Theatre and premiered at the Lyric Belfast in association with the Belfast International Arts Festival in October 2017.
