Come and see the best student talent the city has to offer!
The opening production of the MIFTAs Drama Festival will be:
an adaption of Romeo & Juliet set during the troubles of Ireland
written and directed by Tom Luke and Eli Carvajal
In West Belfast, 1988, new hope springs from a chance encounter. Jack and Caitlin make plans to leave the ‘peace lines’ behind, if the Troubles will let them go. Using the Romeo & Juliet story, The Falls offers a cross-section of a violent and compelling period in Northern Ireland’s history from both sides of the cultural divide.
