The Story:

Though written in the early 1960s, Keane's character-driven play is just as relevant today: issues of emigration, alcoholism, status of women, and politics (nepotism) are dealt with in spirited and humorous ways. Follow Danger Mullaly, Peg Finnerty, Tom Hannigan, and other characters in Hannigan's pub as they see prospective emigrants passing through on their way to the train station to begin their journey to England. Woven throughout with music, ballads, and songs, the play takes an often poignant and funny look at the harsh conditions that forced people to emigrate in the early 1960’s, as well as the reasons that kept people at home.
