Will Edwina survive this awful experience? Will she be rescued by brave Marion in this slapstick romp? The play will last for one hour.

Five sisters, one uncle, one lover and one son. Two days in the hot summer of 1936 in rural Ireland. A beautiful, haunting, passionate piece from one of the most accomplished playwrights working in English today. Landscapes are revealed, interior and exterior, Christian and Pagan.
