Hummin'

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Tony Guerin 

  • Synopsis

    Set in a remote part of North Kerry, Hummin' tells the story of an old farmer, Mike Dee, and his 'partner' Jennie. Mike, who has suggestions of murdered tourists and buried hatchets in his past, is visited by his nephew Andy who wants Mike to sign his land over to him. Jennie, an ex-prostitute from Dublin, who had left the parish as a young girl carrying Mike's child, suspects that she and indeed Mike will be left homeless. Enter Howdy, a thatcher and would-be cowboy, who has ambitions (encouraged by Jennie) to take her away on the handle-bars of his bike. Violence flares as things come to a head - spilt blood, new hatchets, blackmail and murder finally sees Jennie and Mike facing a deadly confrontation.
