Afters is a charmingly compelling play written by the endlessly talented Ger Gallagher who’s previous work includes the hearth warmly funny ‘Weighing In’. When Jane Loftus found herself pregnant at the age of sixteen, her boyfriend Tommy McDaid skipped town and she never heard from him again. Now in her mid-forties, Jane has returned from London to the family farm to care for her elderly mother. When they attend a local wedding, Jane is shocked to run into Tommy who is home from America on holidays.
As the evening unfolds and the pair become reacquainted, both are ambushed by shocking revelations which force them to revisit the secrets and lies from the past. This chance meeting makes it clear to Jane that what happened can no longer be ignored, and finally gives Tommy an opportunity to put things right.
