Brought to you by an award-winning creative team directed by Andrew Flynn (The Pillowman), with set design by Owen MacCarthaigh, sound design by Carl Kennedy and costume design Petra Breathnach, prepare to be transported to Brendan’s Pub in an isolated Leitrim town. A pub like so many of its kind where the local men gather for their daily pint. That is until a beautiful woman arrives, a stranger to the town. With her arrival comes the opportunity to impress, and so stories are spun of souls past and present. However one story is “more chilling, more sinister and more real than any of them could have foreseen.”
