Sundays in the City 2010

And Then She Smiles

As part of Sundays in the City:

Tinderbox presented AND THEN SHE SMILES by Noel McCann

A rehearsed reading Directed by Des Kennedy

Cast:  Kieran Lagan and John Travers

Sunday 11th April, 1pm at Ulster Hall


A normal day on a normal street in Belfast. Young Frankie and separated Joe leave their houses at the same time to go about their business. As their paths meet, a good deed triggers a set of events which will leave their mark on many families for years to come. Noel McCann’s brilliant new play is a chilling reminder of the impossibility of knowing how others see the world.

Noel McCann was born and educated in West Belfast where he also trained as a teacher. He began his teaching career in Twinbrook but he now lives and works in North Antrim. Noel’s poems, stories and comic strips have appeared in publications including The Salmon, The Big Issue and Small Axe.

His first play, ‘Ireland’s Own’ was read as part of the Linen Hall Library and Tinderbox NEW VOICES series.

And Then She Smiles is his second play to be delivered as a reading.
