Tinderbox are delighted to present A Thought For Your Pennies by Daniel Kelly as part of EastSide Arts Festival in August.

A Thought for your Pennies…Never judge a cover by its book…Everything will be rain as right…What happens when the world stops making sense?

A Thought for your Pennies is a powerful story about family, love and the breakdown of the familiar in living with Dementia. It tells the story of Ray, a young man who was raised by his grandfather who lived his life as an International boxer. Unfortunately, Granda’s health regresses with a common condition among older fighters called Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy which unfortunately causes rapid deterioration. Ray must now learn to transition himself from being Granda’s student to become his carer whilst also pursuing his own boxing career, the girl he loves and the everyday struggles of life.

Intensely physical and full of heart, Tinderbox are delighted to premiere Daniel Kelly’s A Thought for your Pennies as part of EastSide Arts Festival.

Venue: St Matthews Sports and Social Club, Short Strand, Belfast
Dates: 1st, 2nd, 3rd August 8pm
