A Handful of Stars
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?
