“The play is a one-man show about a man called Ger Duffy. He’s from Ballymun on Dublin’s north side. He’s on a methadone programme and he’s journeying through addiction and through big changes in his life. He has a strong connection to wildlife and nature, which helps explain how he sees the world, a way that’s quite different to how most people see it. The play is about love, it’s about judgment but hopefully it’s also about redemption. He’s not the stereotype of an addict, there are many layers to Ger and many layers to his story.” - playwright Lisa Walsh.
