In a Little World of Our Own reveals 'an explosive microcosm centered on a family of three brothers in the Rathcoole district of north Belfast', where Gary Mitchell grew up and still lives (Sunday Independent). Premiered at the Peacock Theatre, Dublin, this 'utterly compelling piece of theatre' (Irish Times) is 'that rarest of experiences: a viscerally and emotionally charged juggernaut which slams into the body leaving the head and heart reeling in its wake' (Tribune).
Tearing the Loom, premiered at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast, is by contrast set in a weaver's cottage in County Armagh at the time of the 1798 Rebellion and presents a searing portrait of a community divided against itself - with inevitably tragic consequences.
