If everyone knows us and we know none,
‘Tis time, I think, to trudge, pack and be gone.

Two men arrive in mean, small-town Ireland. They don’t know anyone but everyone knows them. One meets a wife he didn’t know he had. Another is arrested for denying a chain he never bought. A chaotic series of events ensue - a debt that needs to be paid, an unfair arrest, a pile of infidelity, a family reunited and an exorcism! And in a small town, even with social distancing, news travels fast. Featuring two sets of twins and a talking dog, this is The Comedy of Errors of lockdown!

The show will be streamed online on The Lir Academy YouTube Channel, HERE! at 7.30pm on Friday 17th July.

This production can be watched free of charge. However, if you'd like to give a donation, please do so HERE
