United    by John McDwyer

Featured in the 2008 Festival


United charts the lives of an Irish family over fifty years from the time of The Munich Air Disaster in 1958 which decimated the Manchester United football team. The reality of today's lives are in sharp contrast to the dreams and ambitions of fifty years ago as the funeral of the matriarch brings the family together again and allows secrets to be aired and conflicts resolved until the family reaches closure and, once more, becomes United.
