A rousing, comic play set in an old-fashioned cobbler's shop in small-town southern Ireland.
Terry is a man who, surrounded by love and friendship, is haunted by the woman who previously betrayed him. His only solace comes in singing with the barbershop quartet.
Billy Roche's play The Cavalcaders was first staged at the Abbey Theatre Peacock, Dublin, in 1993.
The script contains the music for the a cappella songs performed in the play.
