THE BONEFIRE

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Rosemary Jenkinson 

  • Synopsis

    Across Belfast the Loyalist community is steadying itself for the orgiastic drug-fest that is the sacred and glorious 12th of July. As ‘The Boney’ looms larger day by day, UDA wannabes are drawn like moths to a flame. Up in the flats, hardman Tommy thinks Leanne is more like his Ma than his sister, but in her head Leanne is anything but maternal. And when Tommy’s pal Davey arrives with a mysterious new woman, it only takes a spark to ignite the Bonefire.
