Background


Good Gracious, Good Friday began life as a short play, and was workshopped, and performed at Theatre N16, under the guidance, and dramaturgical, support of fellow playwrights Sarah Milton (TUMBLE TUCK at Underbelly, Edinburgh Fringe, Lucy Light at Theatre N16) and Ffion Jones (THE WRONG FFION JONES, Paines Plough Roundabout and Vault Festival).

Synopsis


22nd May, 1998. Belfast, Northern Ireland.


The result for the Good Friday Agreement Referendum has just been announced.


Four mostly hungover, twenty-somethings come together, to use the historic outcome as an excuse to drink all over again.


Although they claim to have no interest in "that boring news on the telly" - as the night draws on, their true feelings for their country, and each other, will be revealed.


Good Gracious, Good Friday is a nostalgic look back at a huge turning point in Northern Ireland's history, filled with pastie suppers, Gerry Adams' beard, Supermarket Sweep and the truth behind the mysterious 'Norn Iron' codenames Plates and Cups ...
