‘The Sweety Bottle’ coming to Craic Theatre
BRASSNECK Theatre Group are set to bring their hilariously funny play ‘The Sweety Bottle’ to the Craic Theatre in Coalisland.
The play, set in Belfast in the 1970s at the rear of Brennan’s sweet shop, a popular shebeen is in full swing.
This secret drinking den is a place where punters come to escape the troubles around them and to exorcise their own personal demons. With hilarious characters and calamitous incidents, we embark on a voyage to an era where the city and its people never ceased to find humour in even the darkest of times. A hilariously nostalgic trip down memory lane, ‘The Sweety Bottle’ is sure to have you crying with laughter as we remember everything that was good about Belfast during the rare auld times.
Written by Joe Brennan and Gerard Brennan, a father-son writing duo,‘The Sweety Bottle’ recalls their own fond memories of Joe’s father’s shebeen and the community that once graced it.
