A new play from the author of The Steward of Christendom, loosely based on the Charles Haughey Presidency. Johnny Silvester, from Derry, a successful but now retired Prime Minister of the Republic, lives in some opulence just outside Dublin. Daisy, his wife, is on her way to the country to see her cousin for the weekend but Johnny is staying at home to speak to a student coming to question him for her history PhD. In the course of the weekend, old domestic wounds are re-opened and Johnny's integrity in office is finally challenged.
