On The Street Where We Live
On The Street Where We Live is the brand new MAC audio play series about the streets we’re living on in the times we’re living through. Produced in the MAC’s Audio Lab by local playwrights, creatives and actors, all eight of the 10 minute long episodes are now available to enjoy on their website. Listen to them at once, or over a few days or weeks.
By evolving to face down the challenge of lockdown, we’ve turned our Downstairs Theatre space into a state of the art Audio Lab. The thinking being, if you can’t come to our place, we’ll come to yours.
We’re using it to record all sorts of good stuff, the first being an episodic play of eight separate stories, written by eight different local playwrights, all set on a typical Belfast street during COVID-19 lockdown.
On The Street Where We Live explores love, tragedy and redemption; hope, compassion and forgiveness. It’s funny and upbeat; tragic and heart-wrenching. It’s about real people leading unreal lives. It’s about the times we’re living through. It’s about the streets we’re living on.
