Tommy is barely scraping by—he lives in a filthy studio apartment and survives on odd jobs around Dublin. But when he rescues a young woman from her abusive boyfriend, Tommy’s dilapidated home becomes a safe haven from her violent past. And the tenuous friendship they build alters their lives forever. A delicate and humane play from one of Ireland’s most widely produced playwrights.
