They grew up together, dreamed together and emigrated together from the Kerry village of Brandon in the late 1980s. America didn’t quite fulfil their dreams and they returned home, chastened but wiser.
The friends gather once again to welcome home one of their own, Jack Flynn, who has flown solo across the Atlantic. It should be a celebration, but their tangled history threatens to tear them apart. In this debut play by Listowel Writers’ Award-winner Michael Hilliard Mulcahy, directed by Peter Sheridan (The Shawshank Redemption, 47 Roses) the past is a powder keg waiting to explode – the only question is who will strike the first match.
