Theatre: All's not fair in love and loss

Winners and Losers, Lyric Theatre, Belfast - Until June 10, 7.45pm

By Grania McFadden

A welcome opportunity to see Brian Friel's two-part meditation on love and loss. In Winners we meet Joe and Mag, a young couple with a secret between them and a shadow over them. In Losers, Andy and Hanna cope with the unromantic reality of domestic life after the spark has gone out.

Friel's play has as much to say about Ireland's shifting social attitudes as it does about love.
