On Such As We

By Billy Roche

Paperback £8.99£7.19

There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

A heart-warming play set in a small town in southern Ireland - from the award-winning writer of The Wexford Trilogy.

Oweney's barbershop, where the rooms to let above the shop offer refuge to a host of lonely hearts: a recently laid-off hotel night porter, an angry young artist, an orphan girl, a wounded old widower, a likeable bruiser and the beautiful Maeve. All of them in their various ways fall under Oweney's loving spell.

Billy Roche's play On Such As We was first staged at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in 2001.

Press Quotes

'An elegiac, observant play about vulnerability... More even than Brian Friel... Roche seems the Irish Chekhov'
