Belfast, 1974, The Ulster Workers’ Council strike. A group of women who work in a shirt factory defy their menfolk and breach the barricades, determined to keep their business up and running. For it is indeed their business – thanks to the ingenuity of their boss and his best friend, a professor at Queen’s University.

Based on a true story, The Professor and The Factory is a new play from Bangor playwright, Michael Ievers. Produced by dynamic new theatre company, Marble Productions, it features Ivan Little, whose book Reporting the Troubles provided additional inspiration.

Following the play, Michael will interview Ivan about the book and host an audience Q&A.

*Reporting The Troubles (Blackstaff Press) is available at Eason, Bangor, at an exclusive £2 Festival discount
