John Patrick Shanley’s bittersweet Irish comedy is filled with exquisite language and dark humour and has been acclaimed as his finest work since DOUBT, the winner of both the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize in 2005. With this touching piece full of warmth and sincerity, the Bronx-born author has paid tribute to his Irish roots.

Family farms, feuds and fences have separated neighbours Rosemary and Anthony since childhood. The two eccentric introverts straddling 40 have spent their entire lives in rural Ireland. Rosemary watches the years slip by whilst hoping for the painfully shy Anthony to notice something beyond a patch of grass. When his father threatens to disinherit him, not considering his son the right candidate to take over the family farm, Anthony discovers that the beautiful and tenacious Rosemary holds the key to his future. Their rocky journey to happiness is deeply moving and funny, whilst they try to overcome the biggest obstacle – themselves.
