Cuba & Dog House
Liz Lochhead and Gina Moxley
Two more plays for young people in Faber's Connections series.
by Liz Lochhead is set at the time of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. As events unfold and people begin to fear the worst, Barbara and Bernadette decide to mount their own school protest. Daring each other on, they take on the Establishment - but not without cost to their friendship.
In Gina Moxley's Dog House the cycle of young friendships and romance in Lime Lawn, Cork City is unaffected by the arrival of new neighbours - until the fear and brutality they live under begin to become apparent.
