About Book

Owen McCafferty's first collection brings together one short- and four full-length plays set in the author's home city of Belfast.

Shoot The Crow
'Tragicomedy of character and circumstance that makes McCafferty look like a ribald Northern Irish Chekov.' Guardian.

Scenes From The Big Picture
'An epic that attempts to put the whole of human life on stage - birth, death, love, sex, work, families - the whole damn thing... McCafferty offers us a wise and compassionate view of the human heart.' Telegraph

Closing Time
'The existence of a writer as good as McCafferty induces a perverse, paradoxical hope.' Guardian

Mojo Mikibo
'A razor sharp evocation of time and place.' Irish Times
