BoneFire titled

A comedy of manners amongst the sectarian classes. Rough Magic returns to the Dublin Theatre Festival after the smash hit Improbable Frequency in 2004. This world première is a glittering comedy of violence that takes a darkly satirical look at what really lights our fire…

Across Belfast, the Loyalist community is steadying itself for the orgiastic drug-fest that is the sacred and glorious 12th of July. As 'the boney' looms larger day by day, UDA wannabes are drawn like moths to a flame. Up in the flats, hard man Tommy thinks Leanne is more like his Ma than his sister, but in her head Leanne is anything but maternal. And when Tommy's pal Davey arrives with a mysterious new woman, it only takes a spark to ignite 'the bonefire'.

Developed during the company's successful SEEDS new writing initiative, The Bonefire is the debut play of a bold and exciting new voice in Irish theatre.

The Bonefire contains strong language that some may find offensive. Not suitable for children.

"A NEW ROUGH MAGIC PRODUCTION IS ALWAYS AWAITED WITH SALIVATORY EXPECTATION” - The Irish Times

"WITH THE CONFIDENCE AND SKILL OF A MASTER CRAFTSMAN, ROUGH MAGIC IS PRODUCING SHARP, BRAVE WORK THAT IS FINDING A HUNGRY AND APPRECIATIVE AUDIENCE”- The Village
