Planet Belfast

By Rosemary Jenkinson

February 2013

Tinderbox returns to the MAC this Spring with Planet Belfast by Rosemary Jenkinson.

The production brings together playwright Rosemary Jenkinson, designer Ciaran Bagnall and video artist Conan McIvor in an exciting new collaboration.

Meet Alice – Stormont’s only Green MLA.  She plans to save Northern Ireland from the influence of big corporations, while at home she hopes a new baby will save her marriage.  Her husband Martin is a controversial historian who is secretly planning an explosive new book, while his boss Danny is fighting to secure funding for his victim support centre.  When their friend Claire unexpectedly re-enters their lives, the past and the future are set to collide spectacularly right over Belfast.

Planet Belfast is a witty and ambitious new play by Rosemary Jenkinson about the choices we make for the public good versus our own private gain.
