THE GIANT'S CAUSEWAYS

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Festival
Nora Sun McLaughlin

The Giant’s Causeways, asks the question, can the friendship between two boys, one Catholic, the other Protestant, stand up to the political and religious battles surrounding them in Northern Ireland in the 60's and 70's? Loosely based on a story told by her father who grew up in Belfast during the Troubles, McLaughlin tells her tale from a larger, empathetic perspective that no one side was right, weaving a fierce drama about rage, pain and death along with some Irish singing, whiskey drinking, and the moral choices we make every day.
