Description: In a gas station in Northern Ireland, barely north of the border, Pumpgirl gets few customers beyond lecherous men and cruel women who remark on her tomboyish appearance. Otherwise guarded, she has struck up a friendship with “no helmet Hammy” – an amatuer stock-car racer who prefers to spend time with his unsavory buddies over his wife and children. As Hammy’s wife, Sinead, stays home alone, she simmers with rage over her isolated, disappointing existence. On Hammy’s birthday, their lives become perilously intertwined, leaving them face to face with a desperate future.
Pumpgirl, works in the petrol station. She’s in her twenties. A butch girl. A girl who loves her job and thinks she’s one of the lads.
Hammy , late 20’s/early 30’s. Works in a grubby chicken hatchery while winning amateur stock car trophies on the weekend. Known as “No Helmet Hammy”, he is fearless behind the wheel but much less successful in his marriage. He is raw around the edges.
Sinead late 20’s/early 30’s Hammy’s wife and the mother of his two children. Their marriage is on the rocks. His philandering and drinking have driven a wedge between them. She is lonely, sad but has an irrepressible spirit and takes no prisoners.
All roles require an authentic Northern Irish Accent.
Note: All stage management positions have been filled.
