Diarmuid and Gráinne


  • Playwright

    Paul Mercier 

  • Synopsis

    The underworld is at peace and the ageing Fionn is about to achieve the status and respectability he has long craved for after years of working the streets. He will marry the boss’s daughter and gain everything: the control of an empire, social status and youth. But the boss’s daughter, Gráinne, has other ideas and Fionn’s personal bodyguard, Diarmuid, finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
