Kerrigan's play successfully demonstrates how the little people of history can and do make a difference, even when momentous happenings are unravelling around them. At its heart is Sean's basic generosity of spirit, clearly evident in Conor Maguire's carefully considered performance. Maguire also effectively suggests Sean's underlying complexity: he is haunted by the memory of a friend shot dead on Bloody Sunday, and restless in his relationship with the long-suffering Gene, who palpably adores him.
