CQAF presents Richard Marsh's acclaimed retelling of classic film DIE HARD

“You’d have to be as heartless as Hans Gruber not to be touched and uplifted.”  

An acclaimed retelling of classic film Die Hard from Richard Marsh – Fringe First-winner, BBC Audio Drama Best Scripted Comedy Drama award-winner and New York cop (one of these is untrue). This joyfully funny show makes its Belfast debut following rave reviews for its premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe, & ahead of an international tour.

When gunmen seize an LA skyscraper, off-duty policeman John McClane is the hostages’ only hope. This uplifting action romp (and unauthorised parody) pays affectionate tribute to the iconic 80s fan favourite. Essential viewing for Hans Gruber superfans and newcomers alike.

Content warning: divorce, foot trauma, German terrorists.

“Rollicking fun!”  ★★★★British Theatre Guide

“Whether you’re a Die Hard fan or not, it guarantees happy trails”★★★★The Guardian

★★★★The Telegraph (Best Shows Of Edfringe 2022)

“Playful, inventive… genius creation.”  ★★★★Mail on Sunday

“An exciting, poetic dramedy gem… simply to Die Hard for.”  ★★★★Scottish Mail
