Over the Bridge

It's apparently been more than half a century since Sam Thompson's controversial drama has played on a British stage. Set in a Belfast shipyard in the 1950s, it follows a workforce splintered by sectarism and falling into violent, bigoted mobs. It premiered to much backlash ahead of the Troubles in 1960, and has been revived here by director Emma Faulkner.
