Padraig Coyle’s Mixed Messages, directed by Julie Kinsella, is a new play in development.  Through staged readings of selected scenes,  follow the story as it moves from Belfast to Norway, Iceland and Canada.

Belfast footballer Teddy Gillespie (Michael Patrick) was a radio operator with the Norwegian navy during the North Atlantic Convoy runs of World War II.  His friendship with Norwegian seaman Gunnar Nyborg (Nordic actor Peik Siren) appeared destined to last a lifetime.  However, unexpected events intervene and their impact on the lives of Gunnar, Teddy and their partners Marta/Peggy  (Sandra ni Bhroin) continues long after the war ends.
