  • Synopsis

    In a time of all talk no action, you are invited to shut up and listen. Belfast. The bridge over the river. Friday evening. A three hander for the city’s forgotten. A lyrical punch in the gut. it’s getting harder and harder for me is the story of three women in Belfast today. It’s a cracked mirror to all places, all women. It’s hard to keep going and these women are on the edge.
