The West Awakes

The West Awakes

Kabosh, in partnership with Failte Feirste Thair and Coiste, presents The West Awakes as part of Faile an Earraigh 2013.

In 2010, Kabosh commissioned four playwrights, each choosing a location along the historic Falls Road beginning at St. Comgall’s School, and taking in Conway Mill, Cultaorlann, the City Cemetery and Milltown Cemetery, building on the success of the existing political tours in West Belfast. Kabosh is back for this year’s Faile an Earraigh 2013.

Written by Kieron Magee, Jimmy McAleavey, Laurence McKeown and Roseleen Walsh, featuring West Belfast actors Gerard Jordan and Antoinette Morelli, each play brings to life the rich history and vibrant heritage of this unique area of Belfast. Tours will be led by Joe Austin (Still Imprisoned Project).

The actors were superb, the dramas delivered in a very sincere manner, giving a totally new take on some of the stories being told on the tour.’ – Audience member
