About the play..


Belfast 1947. The sun shines down on a post-war world. A 16-year old boy enters the gates of Harland and Wolff's Titanic shipyard. 1700 ships built between here and the Clyde, 67 trades, 300 acres of land and 35,000 men employed at its height. Regarded as the biggest and best there is, if you can dream it - they can build it. This is history - this is his story. ‘Dan Gordon's brilliant two-man play constructs a picture of boat-building, friendship, hardship, humour and heroism as carefully as the men they portray built the Titanic’ (Belfast Telegraph).
