“Belfast. The summer of 1970. The heat’s meltin’ the tarmac on the street, the buses are
burning bright and punters are drinking petrol outta milk bottles”.
Mojo and his mate Mickybo are two nine-year-old boys from opposing sides of the sectarian
divide. They are 'thick as two small thieves', playing headers, being mouthy, building huts,
spitting from cinema balconies and re-enacting their favourite movie, Butch Cassidy and the
Sundance Kid. They are young cowboys in the making, with the violence of The Troubles
only obliquely impacting on them – until finally their friendship is destroyed in a way that
they only later come to understand.
The critically-acclaimed Mojo Mickybo from Belfast playwright Owen McCafferty is pure,
undiluted storytelling - fast-paced, darkly funny and action-packed. Not to be missed!
A glorious, vivid play full of verbal swagger...creates vast emotional ripples...lethal
