Setting: Set in the side room of a public house.

Period:  Set in early 1960’s rural Ireland

Synopsis:  Many Young Men of Twenty, is a heart-warming and sometimes heart-wrenching look at emigration.

In the play, the action takes place in a waiting room off the bar of a public house whose clientele consists of those arriving from or departing toEngland. By the end of the play one thing is clear, ‘there is nothing left in this country anymore; for young or old’.  When ‘Danger’ Mulally realises that he too must leave, he pours his wrath on all those who have brought the country to such a sorry state. 

The story may be set in the late 1950s but its theme has frighteningly contemporary resonances.
