Weeman Theatre bring an explosive dark comedy examining the relationship between Ireland and England told through those trapped in their own situations. It’s the 1980s, ‘the troubles’ in Northern Ireland are at their height. But life goes on and some people just want to get their leg over!

“Bang bang and its all over!”… “Ain’t Thatcher beautiful?”… ‘’Some women love a man in uniform…even if he is a terrorist’’… “When sleeping with a soldier, it’s not that clap you need to be worried about, it’s the tarring and feathering”…”But always make sure you come home and make love to your husband after the bingo”.

BOMB SEX is an eclectic mix of English and Irish characters who cross the Protestant and Catholic divide, delving into the conflict and its political impact at the time. Intertwining dynamic story-telling with comedy and pathos, the play examines the fight for identity at a time when it was dangerous to be who you wanted to be. Fresh from a sold out run at Brighton Fringe 2018, this hilarious and yet tragic piece of writing is penned and performed by Fintan Shevlin.
