DIRECTIONS & VENUE INFO
As family after family relocates out of Dublin's blighted Ballymun tower blocks, young,
single-mother Paula tries to hang on and keep her own family together, including
managing her streetwise 16 year-old sister, just back from London and
full of swagger and Bacardi Breezers.
When a chance at romance enters Paula's life, will she sacrifice the old to build a new future,
or will she hang on to what she knows, even as it threatens to crumble around her?
Philip McMahon's play is as vital now as when it debuted in 2011, offering a loving
and unflinching look at the lives of Ireland's strong, fierce-hearted women,
and the choices they face in a difficult world.
