    Community care workers Francis and Loretta look after Davy, a lonely old man whose greatest loves are Frank Sinatra and the races. When Davy dies on the day his horse finally comes in, his two cash-strapped carers are faced with a mouth-watering dilemma. Just how far they will go to make ends meet? This outrageous new dark comedy from Northern Ireland's premiere playwright Marie Jones (Stones In His Pockets) is a timely tale of two women struggling in a tough economic climate.

When Francis (Katie Tumelty) turns to her fellow caregiver Loretta (Tara Lynne O’Neill) and utters those four imploring words, chances are that both are going to find themselves drifting ever closer to calamity.
