‘Everywhere is Leopoldville. Everywhere’
Leopoldville is a dark Irish play set in 1990, at the tail-end of the last recession. Leopoldville is about a gang of young men who rob a pub in a border town. Damaged lives are revealed and friendships are tested as their crime spirals horrifically out of control.
