The Derry Boat
A roller-coaster ride of a play, which tells the funny, yet poignant, story of four generations of migration between Ireland and Scotland. It charts the history of the O'Donnell family, from John, who leaves Donegal penniless at the turn of the century, to the return of Shughie has grandson, a Glaswegian wide boy with attitude in the summer of '98. The result is a 'serious comedy' which presents a wry look at the life of emigrants to 'big, sooty, smelly, socialist Glasgow'.
