A moving, funny and insightful portrait of a family, with storytelling and traditional Irish music enriching the atmosphere and providing a sense of historical continuity ...

The 1970s, Northern Ireland - Pat and Mary Gormley are an ill-matched couple

Pat is a laid-back publican, a storyteller and musician, whereas Mary is determinedly, upwardly mobile, nagging at their children to succeed and moving the family away from the pub as soon as she can

Looking back thirty years later, their daughter Kathleen tries to piece together the family story so that she can understand what drove them apart

In doing so, she uncovers an important family secret

" ... its heart is so big, and its storytelling style so direct and unaffected, that it's a play that envelops you entirely and hugs you tight" ~ Lyn Gardner, Guardian
