A new version of Michel Tremblay's Les Belles-Soeurs by Deirdre Kinahan.

Green Shield stamps, a million of them, and Ger Lawless has won them all. It’s Ballymun, it’s 1973 and she’s got 15 friends round for a stamp-sticking party.

Over one night, the lives of 15 women collide in Deirdre Kinahan’s new version of Michel Tremblay’s fêted Quebecois comedy.
