Dublin Port, 1980
Following the death of an elderly docker, his friends gather in the local pub, The Dockside, to celebrate his life.
Emotions run high and a powder keg of friction comes to a head as a dockland community come to terms with the challenge of building new lives when old ways get swept away.
Over the course of an evening awash with songs, sharp Dublin wit and tales of life on the Docks, hidden tensions expose fault lines in their complex relationships.
After the success of Ulysses, Dermot Bolger and Graham McLaren reunite to present this Dublin Port Commission as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival 2019.
