England, 1960s: into the home of Michael Carney and his English wife come his brawling family of brothers and their father, the fire-breathing Dada. Written when he was just 25, Tom Murphy’s play remains a devastating portrait of the pull of tribalism and violence in men, and the desperate need to stand against it.
