New York City
During World War II in Ireland’s County Donegal, the close-knit West family has love and laughter in the safety of Dolly’s kitchen to distract itself from fears of the war nearby. But their plan to escape involvement is shattered when one of their own brings a British and two American soldiers across the border and into their midst. Soon clashes over issues of loyalty, jealousy, sexual identity and love invade the neutrality of Dolly West’s Kitchen. This hilarious and poignant play invites us to feel the souls of its characters and reflect on the uncharted paths we’re led to by our choices.
