Set in a Derry graveyard in the aftermath of the Bloody Sunday killings.
In a burial ground seven Derry people wait for the miracle to happen, namely that the dead will rise. Through the play they tell their stories, which are also the stories of their ruined city, its sorrows, its comedy and its history.
