Syn­op­sis
The play fol­lows the life of Padraig Potts McK­eir­nan, who has a habit of just eat­ing what­ever is on his plate… metaphor­i­cally that is… from grow­ing up near the tiny rur­al vil­lage of Drum­namee, Coun­ty Leitrim in the 70’s and 80’s to falling in love with Sil­via Lang, a per­fect protes­tant girl… to mar­ry­ing Mary Tague, the priests house­keeper, who he nev­er real­ly liked… to get­ting rid of Mary Tague and her moth­er, who he claims invent­ed vine­gar… and even­tu­ally to the real­i­sa­tion that the world isn’t as big as he first thought.
