The play follows the life of Padraig Potts McKeirnan, from growing up near the tiny rural village of Drumnamee, County Leitrim in the 70’s and 80’s to falling in love with Silvia Lang, a perfect protestant girl… to marrying Mary Tague, the priests housekeeper and eventually to the realisation that the world isn’t as big as he first thought.
Des Bishop is coming home after spending over a year in China. He has some fun stories to tell about that: from working in a restaurant in the North East for a month to trying to find a wife in a Marriage park; plus some great journeys with Leo his co-worker from the Abrakebabra days. But he also can't wait to tell you about all the things he missed about home: democracy, milk, sarcasm and so much more. Most importantly though Des just can't wait to speak English without being censored. Absence makes the heart grow funnier, so come and check out this unique show.
