Three men, Kevin, Dermot and Joe, stand and tell their stories on a bare stage. They never meet. Or do they? From this simplest of dramatic devices emerges a rounded tale of Irish life across the generations, accurate and poignant and therefore unforgettable. The poetry of ordinary life. In this premiere recording, made with the original cast directed by the playwright, the unique talent of Conor McPherson, one of Ireland's leading dramatists, is presented.
