Two old friends, Tom Don­nell and James McHugh are dig­ging a grave for lo­cal char­ac­ter ‘Smokey’ McCormack.

The spirit of the re­cently de­ceased man joins them on stage for the en­tire play, but it’s still too late for Smokey to ex­plain ex­actly what was go­ing on with cer­tain mem­bers of the lo­cal GAA team in his house in the years leading up to his death.

This play is about that rit­ual. About the things that never get said be­tween men who played sport to­gether, would die for one an­other, would do any­thing for the ‘cause’ and yet keep their real thoughts a se­cret to the grave.
