The Play

It's 1993. A small cottage in rural Co Galway. Two brothers have violent disputes over the most mundane and innocent of topics. A young Priest battling with his own demons tries to resolve the bitterness between the two brothers. A seventeen year old school girl tries to make her way in the world. This comedic Play allows us to explore some of the most challenging topics in Irish society.
