Like so many of the great Irish authors, McPherson's writing has a beautiful, lyrical quality and the characters he creates are not easily forgotten. Once again, he explores the heart and psyche of the common man in these three interconnected monologues. The young man who is desperate to move out of his parent's house once and for all; the middle-aged man, a borderline alcoholic and serial loser who has landed a job he's not qualified for; and the old man, a sprightly widower who tries to make the most of his mundane retirement home existence. Set against a backdrop of contemporary Dublin—these three different generations are vastly different yet all three share a common concern about lost love—and their own part in losing it. The power of these three interlocking stories grows gradually into one incisive portrait of Dublin life, in a play that is hilarious in its detail and moving in its portrait of ordinary lives.

Conor McPherson was born in 1971 in Dublin. He is best known for The Weir which ran in London's West End for 18 months as well as a lengthy Broadway run. He has won the Laurence Olivier, Critics Circle, Evening Standard, Meyer-Whitworth, Stewart Parker and George Devine awards. Following I Went Down (1998), his second film, Saltwater, which he directed himself, recently opened in London.

Review:

"'McPherson's new play - buoyed up by his storytelling flair and his gift for skewering detail - is alive with subtle shifts, vivid with really good jokes... He is terrific.' Observer. 'The play is a fine, often very funny piece of writing.' Independent 'Totally absorbing, often hilarious and, at times, heart-wrenchingly moving... An act of pure theatre' Irish Times. 'McPherson is an Irish storyteller par excellence...' The Times"
