Synopsis

LUNCHTIME ONE-ACT. Young Dennis O’Flaherty has been sent back from the front to recruit more Irishmen to the war. The only problem? He neglected to tell his Irish Nationalist mother he’s fighting for the English. Packed with family feuding and witty repartee, this Bernard Shaw one-act skewers every illusion about why we fight.
