“Valene and Coleman, two brothers living alone in their father’s house after his recent death, find it impossible to exist without the most massive and violent disputes over the most mundane and innocent of topics. Only Father Welsh, the local priest, is prepared to try to reconcile the two before their petty squabbling spiral into vicious and bloody carnage.” (Dramatists Play Service)
Billed as “A penned-up Cain and Abel … with a moving and complicated examination of redemption that might offer a wee distant glimmer of hope.” (Guardian, Variety)
Girleen Kelleher (age 17+) brazen, yet sensitive. Peddles Irish moonshine
Father Welsh – (30’s) local parish priest with a drinking problem
Coleman Connor – (40’s) Younger, explosive, guilt ridden brother of Valene
