in Liam Heylin’s hilarious and moving play about a post office heist.
Two ex-cons, Darren and Gary, are just out of Limerick prison and required to attend a daily substance abuse program.
This, along with a pair of court-ordered curfews,leaves them with limited opportunity to reconnect with those they’ve wronged in the past: girlfriends, stepsons and one particularly put-upon terrier.
Over cans of Dutch Gold and the occasional spliff, the men reassess their lives, their relationships and the personal responsibility that they bear for those around them. The mantra is ‘never again’ but that’s a long hard road beset on all sides by thwarted desires:
Darren’s desire to emigrate and reconnect with his ex girlfriend and Gary ’s desire to regain the respect of his stepson.
Both desires could be fulfilled. If only there was a way to make some quick and easy money.
