From the award-winning playwright of Stones in His Pockets



"I am a free man, I am a Protestant man, I am an Irish man"

Kenneth is a workaday welfare clerk with steadfast loyalties: family, faith, and golf. His life in 1990s Belfast putts along on the easy pleasures and prejudices of the era, until an incident at a local football match shatters his beliefs and sends him hurtling down a path of resistance and reckoning.

Marie Jones’s raucous and iconic story about nation and identity is both time capsule and timeless. First performed in Belfast in 1994, A Night in November has made successive world tours, including a stop at Irish Arts Center four years after its debut. 

It now returns more than two decades later to examine anew one man’s imperfect but exuberant awakening in sectarian Northern Ireland.



A very funny, poignant, dark, passionate play about a man's desire to reconcile his internal divisions. A Night in November mixes polemic and observation in a rich, rewarding and provocative piece of theatre.”Sunday Tribune
