Description

He is a man on a mission: to confront the King of East Belfast, the most famous bookie of his day.

After 30 years at sea Jim Stewart returns home with revenge in mind.

He is a man on a mission: to confront the King of East Belfast, the most famous bookie of his day.

Will echoes from the past calm Jim’s troubled soul?

Through his deadly business the King of East Belfast married and buried many on the Newtownards Road…..but there are some things money can’t buy. If you spend your life serving the working man’s vices, how can you truly be a good man?

Inspired by stories gathered from the Groves family, this one-person show breathes life into a forgotten period in the history of East Belfast.

Ages 12+

As this event takes place in an enclosed indoor space, we ask that all audience members wear a mask. If you are unable to bring one, a mask will be provided for you. Safe social distancing measures and hygiene protocols will be in place.
