OVERVIEW

    A rundown bunkhouse on a tobacco farm near Tillsonburg, Ontario.

  • Synopsis

    Mac and Digger, two Irish lads, are working for five weeks on an Ontario tobacco farm. Jon, the owner of the farm, is in dispute with Pete the Indian about land rights, while Billy, a farm labourer, seems trapped in a life of hard labour and alcohol. As the play progresses, all is not as it seems between the two Irish friends as they revisit the truth behind their departure from New York the previous summer.
