Black Taxis

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Brian Moore (2) 

  • Synopsis

    Hijacked, targeted by secret service spooks, attached by gunmen, driven by lunatics... almost everybody in Belfast has a black taxi story. Mickey is a driver who has served time inside in the Kesh, and outside on the Falls Road. O'Shea is a bright eyed wannabee who hangs onto every syllable of his mentor's illustrated account of the place of the Black Taxi in Belfast's troubled history.
