Mojo Mickybo

By Owen McCafferty
Published in volume Mojo Mickybo: Three Plays

Mojo and Mickybo relive the summer of 1970 when they were growing up in Belfast, playing headers, building huts and re-enacting cowboy movies. An unsentimental portrayal of innocence betrayed by communal hatred.

Press Quotes

'Mojo Mickybo marries the polished ferocity of Howie the Rookie with the chirpy candour of Disco Pigs... This play is an energising reminder of the fact that all you need for truly magical theatre is a writer inspired by the thought of the stories that can be made on the stage'

Scotsman

'a glorious, vivid little play full of verbal swagger... creates vast emotional ripples... small but lethal'

Guardian
