Playography is currently undergoing an essential rebuild, technical update and maintenance. All updates are on hold until the rebuild is complete. We are continuing to work hard in the background and are still accepting submissions which will be complete in Autumn 2023. For more information visit ITI's website.

  • Synopsis

    Gary is thirty-five and he has to be home for 9. Darren is twenty-one and he can’t show his face after 10.30. Then there’s the course to go to and the booze to be kept off and the cocaine not to be shoved up your nose and the promises to be kept to the wife, to the parole board, to the kids you’re hardly allowed to see and most crucially to yourself – that you’ll never, ever go back to your bad old ways which lead straight as a newly built motorway to the gates of Cork Prison.
