In Declan Croghan's tense and hilarious black comedy, Anto and Kevin find their Irish past crashing in on their new and quiet London lives. Unfolding events force them to fight for their true allegiances, their futures... and their lives! Under the relentless pressure of a fearless and flirtatious neighbour Una and the dark presence of an enigmatic lodger Peter, will the boys find a way out of the situation they find themselves in? With the backdrop of the Irish Troubles, this black comedy looks at freedom and prejudice, heroism and cowardice, love and hate.
