SQUINTY is a play about how our memories shape us and our society. Four old school friends meet for several swift pints on the afternoon of John Joe Burke’s 40th birthday bash. Their tongues loosened, they wander down memory lane. Longfella recalls Squinty, a lad who spent time in their class when they were 12 and is determined to tell the story of a violent outburst that Squinty was the victim of at that time. But Burke & Weeney don’t want to hear it and keep diverting him with amusing tangents, using Longfella’s recollections to spark off memories of their own. Burke is on his phone constantly, anxious to close a crucial deal and he gets angry at Longfella for dragging them back into the past. Will Longfella get to finish his story? Will the others remember Squinty? Will they all still be friends by the end of the afternoon?
