This an epic tale, both wildly funny and humorously tragic, of three generations of a family inspired by love but shattered by inescapable reality. The Mai is a formidable forty-year-old woman and teacher, whose husband Robert, a musician, has always felt stifled by her ideals of perfection. The play opens in her home in the midlands, on the banks of the legendary Owl Lake, on the day of Robert's return after an absence of four years.

A starry three generation ensemble is led by Maeve Fitzgerald as The Mai, Stella McCusker as Grandma Fraochlan, and her grandchildren, Rachel O'Byrne as Millie alongside Leslie Conroy as Connie. The two family aunts are played by Marion O'Dwyer as Julie and Joan Sheehy as Agnes. Director Andrew Flynn leads a sterling creative team to bring this production to the stage.
