A Paines Plough production
The Small Things
by Enda Walsh
A comic tour de force and in part a numbing horror story
Two houses, perched on top of mountains, stare at each other across a deep valley.
A man and a woman talk about the small things - parquet flooring zigzagging down corridors, the memory of mother's breasts, brown sauce and soggy chips. But these minutiae disguise a bigger story of brutality and unfaltering loyalty which emerges horrifically through the chit-chat.
