Description: The Benevolent Irish Society produced this play in partnership with ACT, and hopes to bring back the 100+ year old tradition of hosting a play during St. Patrick's week. This farce is set on the West Coast of Ireland in a country house on the outskirts of a small town. Tom Healy has recently passed on, and his unusual last requests have the entire neighbourhood up in arms! Come attend Tom's wake and see what shenanigans occur.
