Ingenious, hilarious and poignant

A two-man show about a small rural town in Ireland where a Hollywood epic is being filmed. After a tragic incident concerning a local teenager, Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, who are employed as extras for the filming, give an account of events, taking on all the roles themselves.

The two actors play 14 characters in an energetic, funny and highly entertaining comedy with a poignant undercurrent. This hilarious multi-award winner ran for four years in London’s West End.
