Two plays from the author of The Wexford Trilogy.

The Cavalcaders (Abbey Theatre, Dublin, 1993) is 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.

The script contains the music for the a cappella songs performed in the play.

Also included in this volume is Amphibians (RSC, 1992), an earlier rite-of-passage play in which a twelve-year-old boy spends the night alone on an island.
