Oweney’s barbershop and the rooms to let above it offer refuge to a host of lonely hearts: a recently laid off hotel night porter, an angry young artist, a troubled orphan girl, a wounded old widower, a likeable bruiser and the beautiful Maeve. All of them in their own various ways fall under Oweney’s loving spell. The unseen villain in the play is PJ, a thuggish developer who is trying to buy up all the town’s family businesses, including Owney’s barber shop in which the play is set.

A heartwarming Christmas play from the author of The Wexford Trilogy and The Cavalcaders.
