In this gripping play from one of Ireland’s brightest new talents, playwright Abbie Spallen shapes a startling tale of three lives colliding in rural Ireland. The play unfolds with the story of a homely, tomboyish pump girl at a rundown gas station. When a local racetrack star becomes the focus of her obsession, the affair threatens more than the feelings of his disenchanted wife. A blazing success last season in Edinburgh and at London’s renowned Bush Theatre, the play is in the best tradition of richly detailed and unforgettable Irish storytelling.
