The Small Things

By Enda Walsh

Paperback £7.99£6.39

EPUB £7.99£6.40

A fierce and devastating fable about enforced silence.

Two houses, each perched on a mountain top, stare at each other across a deep valley. A man and a woman talk about the small things – parquet floor zigzagging down corridors, the memory of mother's breasts, brown sauce and soggy chips. But these minutiae disguise a bigger story of brutality and unfaltering loyalty which emerges horrifically through the chit chat.

Enda Walsh's play The Small Things was first performed by Paines Plough as part of the 'This Other England' season at the Menier Chocolate Factory, London, in January 2005.

The Small Things is also available in the collection Enda Walsh Plays: One.
