Don’t get greedy… It’s a deadly sin.
It’s 1969. Man has just set foot on the moon. The streets of Brooklyn are tense. A shaky truce between an Irish gang and the Italian mafia must be upheld. Now $100,000 has gone missing and someone will have to pay.
The world premiere of Drum Belly brings together two exciting artists for their Abbey Theatre debut, writer Richard Dormer (best known for his play Hurricane about Northern Irish snooker player Alex Higgins) and director Sean Holmes, Artistic Director of the Lyric Hammersmith in London.
Hold tight as this edgy new thriller draws you deep into New York City’s gritty underworld.
Please note Drum Belly contains strong language and violence.
