    Paul Robinson directs Billy Roche's decade defining play in its first professional solo revival since 1988 as part of Theatre503's 'Second Look' programme.

    In the Irish town of Wexford where ‘shot-gun’ weddings are outnumbered only by random acts of violence the pool hall is Jimmy's (Keith Duffy) sanctuary. But will such a place embrace his bright ambition or bring it down, burning to the ground?

    Nominated for 4 Off West End Awards including Best Director

    Reviews

    This remains a quietly truthful little heartbreaker, benefiting enormously in Paul Robinson's cleverly pitched revival from the intimacy of the 503 space

    Lyn Gardner
    The Guardian

    glorious revival of Billy Roche’s funny, rueful and tender portrait of adolescent malaise in small-town Ireland... Robinson gets the mooching atmosphere spot on

    Dominic Cavendish
    The Telegraph

    a production that savours Roche's deft portrait of the empty acts of rebellion induced by life's crushing banality

    Henry Hitchings
    Evening Standard

     strong direction from Paul Robinson
