The Play

The play takes place over the course of a single working Friday on a building site in Belfast. Four tilers are in the process of tiling a public toilet and shower area. Ding-Ding, aged 65, is the oldest, with one eye on retirement but little to show for it. Randolph is only 19 and still has hopes that this menial job might lead to a career. Petesy, 36, is the group's alpha male. Socrates, 39, is true to his name earnest and contemplative. Independently, Ding-ding and Petesy hit on the idea of stealing a pallet-load of tiles to make a quick buck, but nothing goes according to plan. Randolph finds himself browbeaten into agreeing to help both, each of them entirely ignorant that the other is planning and identical scam.

The Group

We have been on the circuit for the past few years. We have performed plays such as the Factory Girls, Tea in a China cup, the Night Epiphany, Meeting at Menin Gate and last year, Sive. We have been frequent visitors to the All Ireland confined Finals over the years and we are looking forward to the 2020 Festival.
