Description

One of the highlights of the Belfast Titanic Maritime Festival (25 – 26 May) are the evening performances of Jimmy Ellis: Home Again, an auto-biographical reflection of the late actor’s family home and life working at the docks during his childhood in East Belfast.

Jimmy Ellis: Home Again combines poetry and live music to recreate and celebrate Jimmy’s family and the characters who informed his own life as well as the lodgers who inhabited the house at Park Avenue during the war years, and his family’s work at the docks.  Jimmy Ellis has long been held in fond esteem in Northern Ireland, and by everyone who knew and worked with him. Jimmy paved the way for many actors from Northern Ireland to be recognised in the wider world stage and his own story adds to the narrative of Belfast as an immensely rich artistic hub.
It stars Stuart Graham (The Fall, Hunger) and Katie Tumelty (Fly me to the Moon, Divorcing Jack) who play Jimmy and Jimmy’s mother Tilly and local actors Christine Tedders, Conor McFarlane and Oliver Stevenson who play his sister Eileen, younger Jimmy and various characters.  It has been adapted by novelist and director of the Seamus Heaney Centre, Glenn Patterson and is produced by Blunt Fringe.
Tickets are £15pp and include festival drink and fish and chip cone.
