"You know, Henry, there comes a time in every man’s life when he sees a young girl pushing a dead man around in a wheelbarrow late at night on a deserted beach and he thinks to himself: was it something I did?"

‘Extraordinary new writing.’ Drogheda Independent

In this hilarious, surreal play from Stewart Parker Award-winning playwright Conall Quinn, boy meets girl and girl meets boy. There are only a couple of tiny problems: the girl’s running away from home, one boy’s a pyromaniac, alcoholic, love-struck thirty-two year old and the other’s a dead American airman.

Henry’s in love with everyone, Edward’s given his life in service to his country – well, two days a week, every second week – and the last thing Dumas remembers is that he was flying on the wings of the morning two thousand feet above sea level.

Set on an Irish beach in World War II, The Ones Who Kill Shooting Stars takes a fresh look at love, death and larceny. Just watch out for the flares…

The playwright Conall Quinn is one of Ireland’s most exciting new voices, and has garnered much acclaim for his original and distinctive plays, including The Death of Harry Leon, which won the Stewart Parker Major Bursary Award in 2009, The Unfortunate Machine Gunning of Anwar Sadat, and Miss Canary Islands 1936.
