It’s 200 years ago, and the notorious highwayman Larry Clinch is on the Belfast/Dublin highway with his inept accomplice Patch Skinner. Can Buck Jones foil their wicked schemes? Can Richard Daly, actor/manager extraordinary and his loyal troupe of artistes lend a hand? Will Charity Best, barmaid at The Eagle, or Sarah Devlin, that woman of ill repute, help the bold Buck in his endeavours?
Ken Bourke’s swaggering and hilarious play brings the Lyric Theatre and Tinderbox, one of Ireland’s leading touring companies, into their first collaboration.
