This Sh*t Happens All The Time
Who we love shouldn’t come with a death threat.
We are delighted to bring you this brand new play in association with the Lyric Theatre, written by Amanda Verlaque, directed by Rhiann Jeffrey and featuring Caoimhe Farren.
A young woman falls in love. Her girlfriend’s jealous ex-boyfriend responds with murderous intent. In 2022 he’d be arrested but in Belfast 1992 homophobic hate crime law doesn’t exist. This Sh*t Happens All the Time uses personal experience to explore misogyny, coercive control and queer-baiting to ask why the privileges and protections granted to most of society remain disgracefully out of reach for Northern Ireland’s LGBT+ community.
A Lyric Theatre Production in association with the Imagine! Belfast Festival.
