About This Show

The infamous Scarab Oil Company is looking to expand its operations. In Nigeria, a frightened child tells Sister Martha her dying father’s request. “Take this old film roll and bring it to Henry Barr in Ireland. Trust no one.” Back in Ireland, the film Martha is carrying attracts the urgent interests of some very powerful and dangerous people. Meanwhile, “ex-con” Larry’s plans to rob a convent are interrupted when he inadvertently joins Martha on the run. The ensuing chase thrusts them into the world of international oil skullduggery, awakening passions they thought were dead. This darkly comic thriller from Fringe First winners Fishamble and Donal O’Kelly is “an enjoyable fast paced play that never lets you catch your breath.” (No More Workhorse, Ireland)
