Street riots between Protestant and Catholic youth are still a regular occurrence during the summer months in Belfast, and these highly-charged ideological clashes take center stage in Irish playwright Rosemary Jenkinson's A Midsummer Night's Riot
. Told from a very personal, unflinching point-of-view, this solo show tells the story of Ross, an Irish youth who dreams of being the famous professional golfer Rory McIlroy. With no cash for golf clubs and no place to practice but in the middle of the nightly street riots, soon the only ones noticing Ross' killer swing are the riot police. Following Jenkinson's acclaimed shows Basra Boy
(both of which also premiered at Keegan Theatre), A Midsummer Night's Riot
is poised to be another solo tour-de-force filled with Jenkinson's wicked wit, piercing humanity and biting humor.
