'A glittering jewel on the mountain at the top of Friday.’

A young boy leaves home for the first time, a man begins a job for which he is not qualified, a pensioner receives a mysterious package. As each confronts the significance of these events, they are forced to take stock of themselves, their feelings and of the decisions they have made.

Painting a vivid picture of life in contemporary Dublin, award–winning playwright Conor McPherson [The Seafarer, The Weir and Shining City] weaves together a moving and funny tale of loves lost and found, the consequences of big dreams and the significance of even our smallest choices.
