About the play…….
Aiden has a liquidity situation on his hands.
He’s had to rent out his home to some rough shower from Dublin and move the family into his nearly bankrupt convenience store.
His wife Dee is out at a job interview this morning which is not going well for her to say the least.
Neither of them thought it would ever come to this
But salvation may have just arrived in the form of local battleaxe Gertie Graham. She has their ticket out of the poorhouse.
They just need to get their hands on it without Gertie knowing.
A fast and furious comedy about the lengths we will go to when our backs are against the wall.
