An Ordinary Man – An Extraordinary Journey
When Ulster Protestant, Kenneth McCallister finds himself on the football terraces for a crucial World Cup qualifying match, little does he know that his hum-drum life is about to change forever…
Ian McElhinney directs a brand new production of Marie Jones’ smash-hit one-man play, A Night in November.
Conor Grimes stars as Kenneth McAllister, an ordinary dole clerk on a search for his own identity, sparked by the bigotry he witnesses during a World Cup qualifying match between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland at Windsor Park in Belfast.
A Night in November chronicles Kenneth’s journey of self-awakening as he faces up to his own bigotry and starts to question some of his strongly-held beliefs and those of the people closest to him.
Marie Jones’ enduringly humorous and challenging play is both uncomfortable and compelling as it lays bare the issues of identity in 1990’s Northern Ireland.
