Jump Review

An ambitious, multi stranded tale of existential angst and organised crime set in Northen Ireland during New Years Eve, Jumps tells the story of Greta (Nichola Burley), the daughter of a Derry gangster (Lalor Roddy), rescued from committing suicide by Pearce (Martin McCann), fresh from being roughed up by her father's thugs for looking into his brother's disappearance. Finding solace in each other, they set in motion a series of events that impact not only their lives, but the lives of Greta's friends Marie (Charlene McKenna) and Dara (Valene Kane), and traumatised thug Johnny (Richard Dormer). Working from the stage play by Lisa McGee, director Kieron J. Walsh (When Brendan Met Trudy) juggles the multiple story lines with ease, throwing in some chronological slight of hand for good measure. It moves at a great pace, grabbing the audiences interest from the opening frame, and switching between the three stories effortlessly.
