Synopsis

Heart-warming new play from the author of The Wexford Trilogy - premiering at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin Oweney's barber shop and the rooms to let above it offer refuge to a host of lonely hearts: a recently laid-off hotel night porter, an angry young artist, an orphan girl, a wounded old widower, a likeable bruiser and the beautiful Maeve. All of them in their various ways fall under Oweney's loving spell. Set, as are all of Billy Roche's plays, in a small town in southern Ireland, On Such As We is the first piece by him to be premiered at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, since The Cavalcaders in 1993. It opened in the Peacock in December 2001 in a production directed by Wilson Milam, who directed the enormously successful revival of Roche's Wexford Trilogy in London earlier in 2001.
