Post-War Belfast Times were tough. Money was tight. Jobs were short. But there was always Paradise. While they had that, they had everything ... Based on the book Paradise Lost and Found by Padraig Coyle Charlie Tully and Elisha Scott, two iconic figures from contrasting cultural backgrounds, came together through their association with the great name of Belfast Celtic Football Club. Paradise was the home of Belfast Celtic and a name cherished by many supporters. When Paradise was lost, the silent terraces lived only in the memories of those left behind. Against a backdrop of civil and political division and social deprivation, this play, set in 1952, revives the enduring spirit of one of the most successful clubs in football history. Music, humour, drama and song celebrate a true sporting phenomenon.
