"Danny Boy"


A one act play for 2m & 1f by Tony Breeze ISBN: 9781872758183


A young man working in a shoe shop decides there must be more to life and joins the Territorial Army for excitement.  The play finds him on a mountaintop in winter slowly dying from hypothermia as he remembers the events and the people that led up to his present predicament.  Ultimately he is faced with an agonising decision upon which his very survival depends – whether he can kill and eat a tiny mouse.
