The Absence of Women

The Absence of WomenT041038028
Gerry and Iggy, two labourers from Belfast face the end of their lives in a London hostel talking of the present and thinking of the past. They argue about who has the biggest liver, the names of tube stations and whether they should go back to Belfast or not. But where are the women in their lives? The Absence of Women is a funny and poignant play about the life journey of two ordinary and lonely Belfast men.
