Book Review:

Dr.Smith`s School for Protestant Boys is situated in the West of Ireland. It is a cultural Limbo, a place which has outlived its usefullness, and which is now falling comically asunder. Caught between a future without real possibilities and a past which is a mere idealised memory, staff and pupils busy themselves with strange alliances and subterfuge. In a world of orchards, staff-room meetings, Divinity Exams, Latin Primers, hunts and festivities, an impressive gallery of characters act their many parts. But the play must end.
