Brian Friel’s farce is set in a remote cottage in Donegal which has been converted into a weekend retreat for the urban élite. Jack loans this cottage to his friend Tim for one furtive hour so as to impress his girlfriend’s father. The resulting complications, cover-ups and confusions are constantly hilarious as Friel’s play is virtually a send-up of the sentiments so movingly expressed in his own earlier play Translations.
