  • Playwright

    Michael Duke 

  • Notes

    In the original production, a chorus of players was used from each of the areas of Belfast, Mid-Ulster and the Northwest.

  • Synopsis

    Revenge is an epic story of love and loss. It's Halloween night when the worlds of the living and the dead meet. And it's the last night, for one young couple, before their long awaited wedding. But even as they stand on the threshold of their new life together, the shadows of absent friends return to engulf them. Before the night is over, there are vows of remembrance and vengeance that must finally be settled.
