The Play

A story of a family struggling with a life of poverty in a place of unemployment, poor housing, anti-social behaviour, drink, drugs and domestic abuse.

The specific incident around which some of the play is drawn, was inspired by the true story of Turf Lodge woman Rosaleen Nolan.

The Group

The Lislea Dramatic Players were formed in 1940, performing plays for the local community year on year. In recent times they have played on the festival circuit with some success. This year they are delighted to welcome four young actors making their debut: Ellen as Pauline, Donal as Kieran, Sean as Bap and Caolan playing Eddie. May they 'break a leg'.
