‘Absence of Women’
by Owen McCafferty
A humorous and very poignant tale of Gerry and Iggy, two labourers from Belfast, who face the end of their lives in a London hostel talking of the present and thinking of the past. They argue about who has the biggest liver, the names of tube stations and whether they should go back to Belfast or not. The absence of women a tale of life and its endless possibilities, missed opportunities and how one man’s choice, in one instant, can alter the path of his life forever.
