Set in the fictional small town of Baile Baiste (Gaelic for "Town of Rain") outside of Galway, four young men regularly share hostile jokes and scathing gossip, coaxed by a steady stream of alcohol, at the local pub. When Daithi O'Neill returns to tell the buried secrets of the local Catholic Church's past, their lives are sent into a tailspin. Winner of the National Playwriting Award at the American College Theater Festival and produced at the Kennedy Center, The Lepers of Baile Baiste is a searing dark comedy that slices deep into childhood wounds and exposes the moral corruption of one of the world's most powerful institutions.
