    Really enjoyed this. Explored the troubles from the female perspective. Best quote - Half the time I don’t think the men want to go. Half the time they just want something better for us all. They don’t want to be raging and screaming and hurting more than they can ever forget in the booze or the crack or the men beating other men. I don’t think they know what they want at all or how to get it if they did.

    Three women whose partners have been taken from them by Ireland's "Troubles" try to deal with day-to-day existence. A fourth young woman comes into their lives, making them question coping mechanisms. I read this play in grad school. Liked it, but didn't love it. Now I really like, am this-close to loving it. The emotional lives of the women make more sense to me now, as does the political situation in Ireland.

The emotional lives of the women make more sense to me now, as does the political situation in Ireland. The author explores the ways in which we deceive ourselves and each other, how we disconnect with those closest to us just to survive. The hope of understanding and connection at the end may be too twee for some, but I found it touching and realistic.

    Although it takes a little while to properly get into (I dont think it really held my attention until about halfway through), it makes for an interesting read. I found the monologues to be especially well written and really enjoyed reading them and found Marie to be particularly interesting. The ending is quite unexpected and definitley worth sticking around for. Maybe not one of my favourite plays, but worth looking out for in the library nonetheless.

    This play took me by surprise. The synopsis was super interesting and I loved the idea of an entire female cast. All of the characters had different unique voices and as the secrets got revealed, the stakes got higher and higher. I think this play lacks action, and since the cast is so small, a lot of attention must be paid to characterization and the relationships between the characters.

    An excellent portratal of the lives of three women and their community during the "Troubles" in Northern Ireland. Great characterisation with a deep reflection on society at the time.
