Shoot The Crow

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Owen McCafferty 

  • Setting

    The play takes place during the working day on a building site.

  • Synopsis

    Ding Ding, Randolph, Petsey and Socrates are four very different characters working together 'on the site'. Ding Ding, about to retire, conspires to relieve the gaffer of a pallet of tiles with the help of young Randolph. Unfortunately, he is not the only one with that idea, as Petsey and Socrates have decided to do exactly that to aid their own good causes. Their bumbling efforts at petty crime tell a comic story of four men on the make.
