The action of the play takes place on a very warm day in August.
Three married couples wait for a boatman to arrive to ferry them to Oilean Draiochta, Island of Otherness or Mystery. In the course of a night they talk, sing, and tell stories. What started as an escapade assumes the semblance of a pilgrimage. Gradually their true relationships and frailties are revealed.
