Rum and Raisin

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Alice Barry  Deirdre Kinahan 

  • Synopsis

    Connie and Noreen are two middle-aged shop assistants bottled between the bon bons and the battered crisp boxes of Carolan's Fruit and Sweet Shop in Trim, County Meath. Titillated by the introduction of tango to the town, Connie blossoms under the tutelage of one Moira Monks from Mullingar. Noreen's latent passions are similarly stirred by this Latin rumble, making for a ménage a trois with a macabre midland twist.
