The Manchester In-Fringe Theatre Awards (MIFTA’s) is the Drama Society’s very own In Fringe Festival. During the festival, up to 8 productions are performed, showcasing a mixture of original writing and adaptations.

Come and see the best student talent the city has to offer!

The opening production of the MIFTAs Drama Festival will be:

'The Falls'

An adaption of Romeo & Juliet set during the troubles of Ireland written and directed by Tom Luke and Eli Carvajal.

In West Belfast, 1988, new hope springs from a chance encounter. Jack and Caitlin make plans to leave the ‘peace lines’ behind, if the Troubles will let them go. Using the Romeo & Juliet story, The Falls offers a cross-section of a violent and compelling period in Northern Ireland’s history from both sides of the cultural divide.
