About the play
For over 50 years Cass has worked among bums and “gooks” in sandwich-bar­­, a joint in the lower east side of New York, a block from Skid Row. Upon her return to Ireland, her drinking and coarse manners embarrass her “respectable” family who reject her. Her brother has her committed to Eden House, a “rest home” for the elderly, but which Cass sees as the workhouse. The play deals with her attempts to discover the home she dreamt of all her life and how, under the influence of Trilbe Costello and Mr. Ingram, other “residents,” she eventually comes to terms with her new reality.
