Belfast 1947. A 16 year-old boy begins an apprenticeship at Harland & Wolff’s Titanic Shipyard. 1700 ships built, 67 different trades, 300 acres of land, and 35,000 men employed at its height, the Titanic Shipyard was the biggest and best in the world. If you can dream it, they can build it!

A love-letter to the heady days of post-war Belfast, THE BOAT FACTORY gives eloquent voice to ordinary people living lives of racy, bracing power. Actors Dan Gordon (A Night In November) and Michael Condron conjure up a host of colorful characters from the glory days of Belfast’s shipbuilding era to construct a poignant, funny, and moving picture of boat-building, male friendship, hardship, humor, and heroism.

Called a “remarkable piece of theatre which pays tribute to the workforce which wove Harland and Wolff’s shipyard into the fabric of Belfast life” by the Edinburgh Guide, THE BOAT FACTORY makes its London premiere at Islington’s King’s Head Theatre immediately following its Brits Off Broadway run at 59E59 Theaters.
