About the Show Less...

A poignant, entertaining and uplifting new play from Dan Gordon. Read More >

July 1947. The sun shines down on a post-war world. A 16 year-old boy walks through the gates of Belfast’s Harland & Wolff Titanic Shipyard. 1700 ships built between here and the Clyde, 67 different trades, 300 acres of land and 35,000 men employed at its height.

Regarded as the biggest and best there is, if you can dream it – they can build it. This is history – this is his story – this is The Boat Factory. Performed by Dan Gordon and Michael Condron, directed by Philip Crawford, this poignant, entertaining and uplifting new play has already proved a big hit with audiences and critics.
