'A brand new play by an established young Irish writer. We all have to work hard these days that''s just the way it is. A new executive breed is emerging in a quarry on the outskirts of Dublin - where once there was a sense of history and socialism, the corporate moguls have enslaved the idealists and turned them into entrepreneurs. Whilst Marion is an ad exec on the make, Kevin is the house-husband with the baby and time to nurture his much-vaunted creative powers. But when the bottom falls out of the market for their dot-com neighbour Richard, an economic squall threatens to sink their fragile emotional prosperity. Declan Hughes has a keen eye for absurdity, a quirky sense of humour and a knack for making acrimony amusing while not underrating the seriousness of the issues. The Times.
