A dark fable of the emotionally stultifying effects of small-town life, from the author of Disco Pigs and The Walworth Farce.

Edinburgh Fringe First Award 2008 

Three sisters in a remote fishing village, trapped in the years that have passed since their halcyon days at The New Electric Ballroom, are still obsessed by darker memories of something resembling romance.

‘a beautiful and devastating play of broken hearts and maimed lives… Walsh confirms himself as one of the most dazzling wordsmiths of contemporary theatre, and one who has a direct conduit to our wanting hearts’

‘shatteringly fine theatre’
