Corner Boys

Corner Boys

A story of ove, loss, laughter and tragedy.

Overview

The time is 1963. The place is a small village in Ireland. For the two young women working in the local drapery shop, the visit of American President John F Kennedy to the country is all important. But for the corner boys, who spend their days on the village Square, the concerns are different – women, money, devilment and darker doings fill their empty lives. This powerful play exposes the light and dark sides of rural Irish life in the sixties – the carnivals; the sodalities; the shenanigans, the humour and the desperation. This is a play filled with laughter and tragedy – a story of life and love in another time and yet a time that’s still alive in Irish memory.

Corner Boys by award-winning writer John MacKenna will be presented by Ladies Who Punch in association with Mend & Makedo Theatre Co. Covering themes of migration, isolation, desperation and love, this play is suitable for an over 16s audience.
