We are delighted to present the US Premiere of Dockers by celebrated Belfast playwright Martin Lynch. Set in the Sailortown neighborhood of Belfast in the 1960s, Dockers is the story of an idealistic young dock worker attempting to reform the tough turf of the Belfast docks. This painful collision of ideologies is tempered with rich humor, a wee bit of music, and more than a few pints of Guinness.
Dockers opens at The Banshee on October 27. The production features Banshee veterans: Lisa Dobbyn, Dan Harper, Melissa Jones, Barry Lynch, Rebecca Marcotte, David Pavao, Josh Thoemke and Noah Wagner plus Seth Compton, Michael Harrity, Jim Krestalude and John McKenna (see lovely pictures of them at the bottom of this page).
