Tom Murphy (1)
Outside a small town in Ireland.
John Joe Moran is 29; the son of the town gravedigger and a washerwoman, and the servant to a craw-thumping grocer who pays him 19 shillin’s a week whilst urging him not to stray from the straight and narrow. John Joe has a girl and dreams of escape just like his brother, but his mother and her close ally the Parish Priest keep John Joe firmly in chains.
