Written & Directed by Patrick J. O’Reilly
Thursday 22nd February

The Man Who Fell to Pieces is a story about John who is falling apart, literally. He spends days holding himself together with tape and cling film and other DIY tools. He keeps his traumatic experiences to himself even though Caroline, his partner knows that something is not quite right. Meanwhile Mum is in the habit of breaking things around the home just so she can give Henry a ring and have him come round and save the day. When John does eventually fall apart, Caroline pops him into a suitcase and travels around Belfast trying to work out how to put his life back together. Formed in 1988, Tinderbox is one of Ireland’s longest established and most respected independent theatre companies.

We need your help to set one man free – Kevin Shields. And there are plenty of times over the years when it was said that he should be locked up, but this time he really did carry on ‘til he was carried off, and it’s high time we had him home. There’s been plenty of talk of bail-outs over the last few years, so now it’s time to show your support for Kevin. He still has all his showbiz contacts from the variety show days, so the night will feature Johnny Cash, Elvis and Bananarama to name but a few. A night of great entertainment is planned, with plenty of Craic guaranteed!
