Regional premiere of an extraordinary tale of hope and redemption by Conor McPherson

Tommy's not a bad man. He's getting by renting a run-down room in his Uncle Maurice's ramshackle Dublin house and doing his best to avoid his wife and kids rolling from one get-rich- quick scheme to the other with his friend Doc. But when he rescues Aimee, a mysterious woman, escape from squalor seems possible. Together there's a glimmer of hope they could make something more of their lives. Something extraordinary, perhaps. With inimitable warmth, humor and heart, Conor McPherson's award-winning play deftly mines humanity found in the most unlikely of situations.  Note: there will be no performance on Thanksgiving, Thursday November 24.

From subtle but laugh-out-loud comedy to delicate sweetness to creeping dread...a surprisingly emotional trip, and it’s not one to miss.

A stunner! So fresh and full of vital poetry that you’ll cling to every word.
