Journeys and Migrations: Stories from the Belfast Festival
Tony Hawks introduces a week of short stories on the theme of Journeys and Migrations by five renowned Irish writers, recorded live at this year's Belfast Festival at Queen's.
For the third year running, BBC Northern Ireland Radio Drama is returning to the Belfast Festival at Queen's with five new short stories for Radio 4.
Taking the theme of this year's Festival - 'Journeys and Migrations' - as their inspiration, Clare Boylan, Gretta Mulrooney, Colin Bateman, Anne Dunlop and Arthur Mathews bring us a varied collection of light-hearted and imaginative stories.
Ranging from a final fling on a singles holiday, to a train journey to find Ireland's greatest eejit, and with characters as entertaining and eccentric as any in Irish Literature brought to life by five talented readers, this week brings together some of the best and most exciting voices in Ireland today.
