THE STORY: The renovation of a house for an English couple in a small Irish town causes tensions to build among the natives as old jealousies, bigotry and racism surface regarding outsiders settling in their town. But nothing prepares them for their new fellow employee, a black African refugee. This play speaks to the ages regarding acceptance and tolerance and the continual struggle and oftentimes war that occurs when your identity is dependent upon your property.
