Skibbereen Theatre present
by Jimmy Murphy
Dave, a care assistant with a complicated love life, Jack a professional actor who
has suffered a life changing accident, and Lily, a retired Irish born civil servant,
cross paths in the Sisters of Calvary Nursing Home on the Hammersmith Road,
London, in this bittersweet comedy about friendship, determination and survival.
