Belfast By Moonlight

Where the River Farset joins the mouth of the Lagan
Rests the chapel of the sandy ford
An inhospitable place for a city
Yet in 1613 a town charter is granted
400 years on as the full moon rises six spirits congregate to offer a haunting lament

This ritualistic drama charts the history of this ever-changing city, giving voice to the forgotten, celebrating personal endurance and presenting a refrain for Béal Feirste.
