Green Shoot Productions presents Brothers In Arms A new play by Sam Millar and directed by Martin Lynch Saturday 25th February 2012 8pm

Following the sell-out successes of Chronicles of Long Kesh and Over the Bridge, Green Shoot Production presents its new play Brothers in Arms.


From the pen of former republican prisoner and novelist Sam Millar, and directed by Martin Lynch, this exciting new work tells the story of two brothers - one a dissident republican, the other a Sinn Fein MLA - who come together to bury their father. Despite their mother's pleas to let their father rest in peace, old resentments rise to the surface in this incisive exploration of the divisions in modern-day republicanism.


Drawing on the playwright's own experiences, Brothers in Arms is an unflinching exploration of the history of the republican movement and the challenges it currently faces. With one section of republicans at the heart of the Stormont government and another section planting bombs and shooting policemen, this play takes an explosive look at what this split means, not only to the Mullan family, but the future of our entire community.
