When their father goes to find work and their mother leaves to find him, Eily, Michael and Peggy, starving and faced with the workhouse, embark on a treacherous journey to find the great aunts they have heard of only in stories.

This story of family, history and hope is told like never before in a new play by Charles way, directed by Paul Bosco Mc Eneaney, with original music by Garth McConaghie.
