COTTEY THEATRE: Belfast Girls
2 p.m., Auditorium, $5/$4, tickets
Cottey Theatre presents “Belfast Girls” by Jaki McCarrick.
Escaping the Irish famine in 1850 five young women seek passage on a ship to Australia. For many of the ‘orphan girls’ on board, the voyage offers a fresh start. But some girls find they cannot escape the memory of the lives they’ve left behind – and that the closer they get to Australia the more powerful the past becomes.
The play is directed by Laura Chaney.
