An epic, masterful twenty-plus-character play about Belfast and its multitude of urban denizens.
The play takes place over the course of a hot summer’s day in an imagined area of present-day Belfast. We see a day in the life of over twenty inhabitants of the district as their stories interweave and collide. In a tour de force of dramatic writing, a whole world is evoked in a couple of hours.
The play won both the 2004 Meyer-Whitworth Award and the 2004 John Whiting Award.
