This 25th anniversary tour will see Matthew Forsythe seamlessly shift through dozens of characters in the story. ‘Is it possible to change?’

In his mid–thirties, Kenneth McAllister is a clerk in the local welfare office. Kenneth is a Belfast Protestant who has followed all the rules. He loved who he was supposed to love.

He lived where he was expected to live. He fought who he was taught to fight.

That is, until one night –– a night in November –– when he did the most exciting, outrageous, crazy thing he’d ever done.

This is the stunning multi–award winning play from Marie Jones, writer of hit shows ‘Stones in his Pockets’ & ‘Christmas Eve Can Kill You.’

‘Funny, passionate and heartbreaking.’
