A kaleidoscope of stories from post-Troubles Belfast, Lagan is an intimate and absorbing dramatic portrait of a city with a past like no other.

Ten lives flow through the city of Belfast, like the River Lagan. A man returns to find old values and new shopping centres. A woman talks to her son’s ghost amid scaffolding. A taxi driver picks up a pint of milk for his drunk dad. And a young woman turns her back on her past and discovers the possibility of love.

'Gregg’s script bites... confident and self assured'

- Whatsonstage.com

'Blurring dialogue and monologue, Stacey Gregg's lyrical, punchy script is a delight. Sombre one moment, laugh out loud funny the next, her writing lends Lagan its urgency and verve'

- Time Out

'The snaking structure is clever as the glancing connections between the characters are stealthily revealed, and there is no doubt that Gregg can really write.'

- Guardian
