Lizzie Lavelle and the Vanishing of Emlyclough


  • Playwright

    Tom Swift 

  • Synopsis

    On The Mullet Peninsula, in a time that’s neither here nor there, lived two town lands at war with each other for no good reason except that it was something to do when the days got longer. Emlyclough North and Emlyclough South were the names of those two warring tribes. They hated each other down to a man, except for one oddly exceptional case.
