Two new plays interwoven as one.

In the wake of a terrible accident, Michael and Caoimhe rebuild their lives as best they can. But all Michael can remember is the boat out on the lough that never should have been there. The barometer points to rain as the young couple realise they might not grow old together.

A lyrical exploration of loss and love
