Seen on the Edinburgh Fringe last year, the two-hander is performed by the playwright and Michael Condron, under the direction of Philip Crawford. It is produced by Happenstance Theatre Company.
Set in July 1947, where the sun shines down on a post-war world, a 16-year-old boy walks for the first time through the gates of Belfast's Harland & Wolff Titanic shipyard.
According to press materials, the actors "conjure up a host of colourful characters from the glory days of Belfast's shipbuilding era to construct a picture of boat-building, male friendship, hardship, humor and heroism."
Gordon commented, "I've lived in the shadow of those big yellow cranes all my life and I wanted to tell their story because they are so much a part of me and our collective heritage. Harland & Wolff built Titanic, the greatest ship in history, but there is a great deal more to the achievements of the thousands of yardmen. They built over 1700 ships with pride and skill unmatched anywhere else in the world, and we need to celebrate that. From East Belfast to Broadway and everywhere in between – The Boat Factory story sails on."
