A rehearsed reading of the winner of Listowel Writer's Week Eamon Keane Full-length Play Award 2019

Set on the west Kerry tombolo (Maharees) Moss’s old fisherman's cottage is threatened by the rising tides; the fields that surround him are forever flooded. His oldest son Bawny wants him to abandon the family home, his younger son Bren wants to salvage both house and homeland.

This professional rehearsed reading of Michael Hilliard Mulcahy's award-winning new play supports new playwriting in Kerry as part of Listowel Writer's week.

‘A terrific piece of work – accomplished, credible and well realised.’

Emer O'Kelly, Theatre Critic and Adjudicator of Listowel Writer's Week
