The story, set in rural Ireland over two days in 1964, centres on one Madge Molloy – a woman in her mid-60’s – who has lived over forty years of her life wondering why her husband Tom, whom she was married to for just five months, disappeared without trace. She has been left to rear her only daughter Maura on their small farm and she has become bitter about men in general! However, the arrival of a new curate to the parish – namely Fr. Michael McCoy - is about to throw light on the circumstances surrounding Tom’s mysterious disappearance and what unfolds on stage has to be seen to be believed! Madge has some serious decisions to make and she has to think on her feet!
This is one play that will have you on the edge of your seat all night and more importantly in tears of laughter. A story like this could only happen in Ireland!
“When it comes to comedy this production really is the Real McCoy” Munster Express
“With glimpses of John B Keane and resemblances of the Fr. Ted and Mrs. Doyle genre this play had the audience in tears of laugher for over two hours. This was a night not to be forgotten” Irish World
