This light-hearted, reminiscent play Makem and Clancy are Coming tells the story of two middle-aged brothers living in a small sea-side village in Ireland in the 1970’s. Like most siblings their characters couldn’t be more different – Peter McCormack (played by Tony Varley) oozes sensitivity with a poetic approach to life whilst Michael, his brother (played by Liam MacNamara) prefers to use his quick wit with the bluntness of a sledgehammer!
