Two new plays that premiered on the Peacock Stage at the Abbey Theatre in 2000

They have a son who took off to London, a daughter who can't go any further than the front gates without feeling homesick, a younger son orbiting the planet and a younger daughter who is the family's last great hope. A warm and irresistible story of suburban family life by the author of the award-winning Dublin Trilogy, Down the Line premièred on the Peacock Stage of the Abbey Theatre on 28 September 2000.
