In the West of Ireland, Tara decides to dance among the children of her fans from years ago, the fans she had before her career as a singer came to an end after a car crash. Discovering the new sound in the nightclub she stands in; Tara's night is a one of unexpected events and not the same as she remembers it.

‘riveting and pleasingly unoredictable taking its audience from the peak of pleasure to the depths of despair – an emotional helter-skelter which should be missed’- The Irish Times, 19 July 1994
‘Druid’s production is perhaps the fullest realisation of Antoin O’Flatharta’s difficult and demanding but ultimately rewarding play’- The Sunday Tribune, 25 July 1994
