Set in Belfast in the 1970s and 1980s, Belfast Blues is one wee girl's story of family, war, Jesus and Hollywood. Written and performed by Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle and Ovation Award winner Geraldine Hughes, this touching piece, both funny and tragic, is a rich tapestry of war-torn Belfast. Woven together through the voices of more than twenty colorful characters, ranging from Ms. Hughes' parents and neighbors to her younger self, this transcendent tour-de-force has been touted by critics nationally and internationally.
Belfast Blues runs on a rotating schedule with The Good Thief.
