February 23- March 31, 1996
Michael Carney has left Mayo for Coventry, hoping to leave behind his homeland and his past with modest ambitions for a decent job and respectable family. However, he is relentlessly pursued by his past: a past that is both the flesh of his own family and the soured spirit of a haunted, marginalised people. With tragic inevitability, the impossibility of escape from his own dark history becomes all too obvious .
“Charlotte Moore has staged the play with interlocking power, the family caught in this squalid living room like bugs in a bottle, swarming over one another while buzzing with futile eloquence”
