Actors Dan Gordon and Michael Condron are taking off for the bright lights of London and New York as part of an extensive four- month overseas tour with “The Boat Factory”, an acclaimed play which Dan wrote to celebrate the people, history and achievements of Belfast’s shipyard's.

The Production will visit London, New York, Wales and Scotland from May to August with the aim of showcasing positive aspects of our culture and heritage to the wider world.

Local audiences will also have the chance to enjoy “The Boat Factory”  at a special performance  at Belfast’s Grand opera House on Sunday, April 28 to mark the start of the tour www.goh.co.uk/the-boat-factory . The tour has been organised by Happenstance Theatre Company and has been made possible with the support of, amongst others, Ulster Scots Agency, Tourism Ireland, Edwards & Co Solicitors.

 We're delighted to let you see a brief preview - a short clip of the play which will be enjoyed by audiences in Belfast, Wales, New York and London this summer. We are proud to be one of the sponsors of the Tour.
