The plays in this volume - three monologues and a three-hander - were all written while Conor McPherson was in his twenties.
This Lime Tree Bower

Rum and Vodka
A young Irishman with a drink problem tells of three momentous days in his life when his drab nine-to-five existence is obliterated in an escapist binge which threatens to engulf him.
The Good Thief
A 45-minute monologue following the misfortunes of a petty criminal whose conscience beats him up when he becomes involved in a bungled kidnap. Winner of the Stewart Parker Award.
Revised edition with new Foreword by the author.
