The Pilferers

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Pat Daly (1) 

  • Setting

    An abandoned farmhouse shed on the outskirts of a large city housing estate. The present.

  • Synopsis

    The Pilferers is the story of four lads who connive to rob the local Post Office. While the play details the planning and executing of the botched job, it is more concerned with the unravelling relationships of the four young men as they are forced to make an uncomfortable decision - to either go down together or give up one of their gang to save the others.
