Funny, poignant and deeply human; 'Quartered: Belfast, A Love Story' is a unique audio theatre experience that allows you to interact with the city in a brand new way, to see it through fresh eyes.
Exploring Belfast's unofficial queer quarter and surrounding streets it opens a new conversation about how gender and sexuality inform and shape how we move through our city and how our city moves through us.
What is the LGBTQ+ experience of Belfast?
When the boundaries between quarters are drawn, who holds the pen?
How much power do we give ourselves to shape the city we live in?
“I found Quartered to be a moving piece of promenade theatre, forcing me to look up from my own horizons to see Belfast as the canvass, the set, and listen to someone else’s story… a triumph” – Alan in Belfast
“This is both an individual, and sadly, a universal story which penetrates deep into the consciousness. It remains lodged there as the days slip away, whispering, niggling, nudging a closer awareness of the streets, murals and buildings that one would unthinkingly have passed by” -The Even Hand
“By addressing a hard-hitting issue with hard hitting humour, listeners are so engaged and captivated” – Theatre NI Young Critics
