The Boat Factory is a new play by award-winning actor, writer and director Dan Gordon, and based on his family experiences of growing up around, and working in, the Belfast shipyard.
Performed by Dan and Michael Condron, it explores our shipbuilding heritage in a poignant and human tale of comradeship, pride, loyalty, kindness, beauty, skill, craftsmanship, nobility and above all heart.
Production highlights have included a major tour of community venues in Northern Ireland, a sell-out run in the Belfast Harbour Commission as part of the 2011 Belfast Festival at Queen’s, and a sell-out run in the Opening Festival of Titanic Belfast in April 2012. Most recently, the production enjoyed a great reception from audiences at the Bozar in Brussels as part of a cultural showcase organised by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and the Office of the NI Executive in Brussels.
