'The Celtic Cross is a beautiful, harrowing, captivating play with heartfelt, heartbreaking characters. In the tradition of so much good theater, this production feels grand and sweeping even as it hits so close to home.'
- Laurie Frankel, Author of Atlas of Love & Goodbye for Now

“The Celtic Cross” is the story of the unlikely friendship that forms between two young men in Belfast, Northern Ireland; one a Protestant and the other a Catholic. Set in the early 1990s, before the peace agreement, they have lived their entire life during “the Troubles.” An improbable friendship unfolds, but their circumstances force them to choose between their friendship and their beliefs. This powerful new drama explores what it means to be Protestant, Catholic, Irish, British, too powerful for your own good, but too weak to change anything. But at its core, the play shows these two characters in their struggle to find humanity; in their friend, in their enemy, but most importantly – in themselves.
