The Titanic Boys
EVENING: €28, €35
To mark 100 years since its sinking, Belfast’s favourite playwright Martin Lynch turns his attention to the legendary Titanic story. But this is not just any old story. This is The Titanic Boys, the true, untold story of nine young Harland & Wolff men who uniquely built, sailed and died on the RMS Titanic.
Two weeks before the Titanic sailed, designer Thomas Andrews walked into the four main trade workshops at Harland & Wolff and asked each foreman to name his best apprentice. When the bosses nominated four young men, Andrews informed the stunned apprentices they were joining himself and four senior tradesmen to sail on Titanic’s maiden voyage to New York as members of the Harland & Wolff Guarantee Group.
Laced with Lynch’s renowned capacity for capturing Belfast character and humour, this is one not to be missed!
