About the Play
Tommy rents a run down room full of junk in his Uncle Maurice’s Edwardian house in Dublin. He scrapes a living doing odd jobs with his sidekick, Doc. Aimee enters his life by a chance encounter, bringing her own problems and life begins to change for all of the characters. 

Conor McPherson, Ireland’s greatest living playwright, skilfully explores the humanity to be found in the most unlikely of situations. The five characters are drawn in fine detail through flawless dialogue, action and setting. The play will be a joy to act.
