Catchpenny Twist

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Stewart Parker 

  • Synopsis

    Dismissed from their teaching jobs, two young Belfast songwriters form a songwriting outfit to churn out fodder for all occasions, including Protestant ditties and instant Catholic ballads to fallen heroes. After receiving two live bullets through the post and warnings from an old teaching colleague, they set off in flight to Dublin and then to London. Success seems at hand, Belfast seems very far away... but for how long?
