WINNER   Best Play – The Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards

A hilarious and moving tale of a quiet Irish community turned upside down by the arrival of a Hollywood movie shoot. The film’s story of a budding romance between a rich girl and a local farmer is played out in stark contrast with the growing friction that develops between the locals hired as extras on the film and the Hollywood big shots.

It is refreshing to know that two men and a box can succeed in keeping a theatre audience fully satisfied for two hours. This is a pitch-perfect two-hander that is entirely absorbing from start to finish
