A real circus of a play, Unforgiven is a laugh a minute exposition of Irish rural life where nothing is ever as it seems to be. P.J. awaits the death of his father so that he can inherit the farm and marry his neighbour Mary and live happily ever after. His brother Seamie (AKA One Word) holds a watching brief while Mary is blissfully unaware of P.J.’s plans for her.
When the father ultimately dies, another brother arrives home from America and a colony of cats land among the pigeons in this hilarious play.
