Future Productions


Our full-length festival production will be Brian Friel's Give Me Your Answer, Do!, directed by Frances Hastie.

You can catch it at the Belvoir Players' Studio Theatre on Friday and Saturday 22nd and 23rd February 2019 and at the following festivals in March:

Ballymoney (7th), Newtownabbey (12th), Portadown (14th), Larne (16th) and Newry (28th).

Give Me Your Answer, Do! is set on a sunny August afternoon in the old manse in Ballybeg in County Donegal, now the home of novelist, Tom Connolly, and his wife, Daisy. They are visited by an American agent who may, or may not, purchase Tom`s papers for an American College library. Joining them is their novelist friend, Garrett Fitzmaurice, and his wife, Grainne, whose marriage may, or may not, outlive the year. Absent from the occasion but overshadowing it by her tragedy is Bridget, the mentally-ill daughter of Tom and Daisy, who has been institutionalised since she was a child.
