The Sand Park
James Anthony Lowry is a big-hearted Offaly farmer who is simply getting on with his life after the death of his beloved wife Rose. Through his musings on life and death, which are often hilarious. James gradually comes to terms with his lot.
We are taken on a mad disjointed journey with a feisty Cavan man. His exploits on the building sites of London are tame compared to his early life in Ireland. His mental breakdown cannot be put in a sling, but his recovery is full of hope.
In these 50-minute plays, there is much to ponder, much to enjoy and two good reasons to laugh out loud.
