A gripping and explosive drama from the multi-award winning playwright.

Brenda is under siege in her Belfast home. Daughter Jenny’s baby is crying upstairs, her mother-in-law is sleeping in the front room and her husband is back after years in prison. And now the women of the Ulster Defence Association want her to demonstrate her loyalty to the cause…

Gary Mitchell’s play Loyal Women was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2003.

‘His writing has the blazing conviction of lived experience combined with an unfashionable relish for strong plots. His best work has a stomach-churning intensity… What a superb night of theatre this is’
Daily Telegraph

‘A vivid portrait of entrenched attitudes… a devastating critique of society where violence is still seen as the solution rather than the problem’
