Welcome to The Quiet Woman, the most benighted, most over-looked pub in town.

Meet the regulars: Tug, the ex-services security guard with the snide asides and the straining slacks, and Yabbo, a barely house-broken housebreaker. Presiding over the pair of them, master of the house, doling out the harm, is the Landlord, Bully.

He runs his rancid little Kingdom with a rod of irony, belittling and berating his paying customers, knowing that they can never leave. Everything changes, however, when, Sirpa, a Finnish languages student, starts working in the pub and begins to upset the certainties of Bully’s ugly little fiefdom and gradually reshaping the stultified world of The Quiet Woman. That is until a sudden act of violence calls everything into question.

The Quiet Woman is a comedy about a crisis in masculinity and a tragedy about an island of lost souls banding together in the face of an uncertain future. It is funny, shocking and unpredictable – often in the same sentence.
