‘Calling a Guard sir, Travellers don’t call buffers sir anymore. When are you going to wake up? You are so thick but that came with your breed.’ When a barricade is erected at the entrance to the halting site where he lives James comes face to face with the conflicts in his life. He is caught between his father’s expectations, his promising boxing career and a new life at college. The barriers surrounding him threaten more than the truth, they threaten his survival. He is stuck. A reflective, authentic and refreshing new play from Rosaleen McDonagh. Irish Press Reviews ‘This is a genuinely gripping piece’- Daily Mail ‘fiercely truthful characterisation.’- Sunday Independent ‘rare lyricism….’ – Metro

Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him.
