‘Red Hand Luke’ actor, Dan Gordon will close this year’s Aspects Festival on Sunday 30th September at 7.00pm in The Parish of Bangor Abbey Halls, and tickets cost £11/£9.

Dan is no stranger to the stages of Northern Ireland and has worked on a variety of productions as actor, director and playwright. He is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Red Hand Luke in the BBC Northern Ireland sitcom Give My Head Peace, and has also played the lead in Marie Jones’ monodrama A Night In November in London and in the Lyric Theatre in Belfast.

Dan’s most recent piece of theatre, The Boat Factory is based on his own experience of growing up around the East Belfast shipyard and is set in the days when the Harland and Wolff Shipyard was the leading shipbuilding firm in the world. The play is the story of a 16 year old boy starting his first job in the shipyard, and the lessons he learns about humanity against the background of that Belfast icon. Dan has been touring and performing the show across Europe, including taking the play to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this summer to great acclaim.

Dan Gordon’s Lucky Bag is a one man show that brings together extracts from the scripts, stories and songs he has been involved with throughout his career, including excerpts from The Boat Factory.
