2nd of 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 were 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. This acclaimed production, performed by Dan Gordon and Michael Condron, is staged in the magnificent surroundings of Belfast Harbour Commissioners’ Harbour Office, one of the jewels of Victorian Belfast.
“A rich and wonderful journey around the shipyard! This was a very accurate and authentic reflection of a wonderful place in time but most of all I have never laughed so much in years. Thanks” David, audience member, Belfast
