Dario Fo’s Can’t Pay Won’t Pay! Ní Dhíolaimid!
Theatre & Dance

In their 20th Anniversary year, return with this new adaptation from award-winning writer Don McCamphill.  Set in present day West Belfast, austerity drives two women to shoplifting.

One in five children grow up below the poverty line, while Starbucks, Vodafone and Amazon are not paying fair taxes. The average family struggles to make ends meet while the top 1% salt away fortunes in offshore funds. This play has a natural fit with the times.

Pair Dario Fo’s razor sharp wit with Belfast’s famous ‘black humour’, add a generous portion of ‘the strong women of Belfast’ and wrap it all up in farce and you have the makings of a good night of theatre.

I mbliain seo a 20ú breithlá, tá Aisling Ghéar ar ais leis an chóiriú úrnua seo, suite in iarthar Bhéal Feirste sa lá inniu, leis an scríbhneoir ardiomrá, Don McCamphill. Feiceann muid mar a chuireann an déine ar bheirt bhan tabhairt faoin ghadaíocht siopa. Agus páiste as gach cúigear ag fás aníos faoi thairseach na bochtaineachta, ní bhíonn Starbucks, ná Vodafone ná Amazon ag díol sciar cothrom cánach. Agus an gnáth-theaghlach ag streachailt leis an tsaol, bíonn an 1% is saibhre ag cur fortún i dtaisce go fáilí i gcistí thar lear. Tá an dráma seo iontach fóirsteanach do shaol ár linne.

Greann géar Dario Fo, ‘greann dubh’ Bhéal Feirste, mná láidre Bhéal Feirste is fronsa den scoth – is ionann an cumasc sin agus oíche mhaith dhrámaíochta!
