What I liked

I thought this was a good script: the dialogue between the different characters was compelling, and flowed well, and made for an entertaining and interesting show. My favorite moment has to be Hugh McNickle’s recounting of the Callaghan legend, though.

What I didn't like

There aren’t any big obvious flaws I can think of; on the whole, I thought it was a great show.

My overall impression

Really enjoyed this, which takes place over the course of an evening in a bar in Northern Ireland during The Troubles. It was well-acted by the cast, who clearly gave it 100%, and the story is full of surprises. Well worth seeing.
