This touching drama explores lost souls and the hope of redemption—with an ample dose of Irish wit. Tommy is a disheartened schemer, estranged from his family. One night, he saves a troubled young girl, Aimee, and begins to feel that his life may indeed have a purpose. Yet, all of that may end, as an ominous and unwelcome man from her past appears. Don’t miss this poignant tale by Ireland’s most celebrated modern playwright.
