The Biggest Show in the Country

The Biggest Show in the Country 24Oct

It’s 2021. Happy 100th birthday Northern Ireland.

Stormont has been down for years.

The UK and Ireland have long disengaged. When an unexpected oil bonanza in Mary’s garden suddenly changes the fortunes of Ulster and its people, is the world ready for the emergence of Northern Ireland as a global superpower?

Inspired by The Nolan show, a daily radio phone in show, The Biggest Show in The Country is a timely anecdote to ‘The Troubles’ narrative. A dark new musical comedy. Swapping guns, bombs and bullets for glitter, banter and ballads. Directed By Adam McGuigan and presented by Wake The Beast.

These performances are supported by Liverpool John Moores University.
