This wickedly funny, poignant play is set in 1934 on a small island off the West coast of Ireland. The arrival of a Hollywood film crew on a neighbouring island sets the youngsters' hearts racing with the prospect of escape and a new life in the USA.
The fabulous character parts are raw, hilarious, challenging, irreverent and realistic, requiring a creative approach and, of course, an Irish accent. This black, tragi-comedy is about getting the audience to laugh and cry at the same time. It is a play to challenge concepts of political correctness; to question who, in fact, are the people who don’t fit in, and a hope of replacing pain and loneliness with laughter and love.
