The Derry Boat

Written and performed by Little John Nee

Directed by Padraig Breathnach

Music by Fergal Gallagher

Little John Nee is an unlikely gangster as he makes his entrance in The Derry Boat in a rumpled black suit and tiny sunglasses, waving a gun and toting a large suitcase. This sets the stage for an unlikely roller-coaster ride that tells the funny but poignant story of the four generations of migration between Ireland and Scotland.  The Derry Boat celebrates the strong and vibrant links which have existed between Donegal and Scotland through the years.
