In the mid 1970s, a group of young men left their homes in the West of Ireland, took the boat out of Dublin Bay and sailed across the sea to England in the hope of making their fortunes and returning home. Twenty five years later only one, Jackie Flavin, makes it home – but does so in a coffin. The play takes place on the day that the winners and losers of the group meet up to drink to Flavin’s memory and looks at their lives, lost dreams and their place in the new Ireland.
