  • Drámadóir

    Jack Loudan 

  • Suíomh

    The home of Mrs. Andrews, some miles from Belfast.

  • Achoimre

    The working-class Moffats and Watsons are evacuated from Belfast to the Watsons' large country house following a bombing raid. Tension quickly mounts between the newcomers and their well-to-do hosts, initially over minor living matters, but later rather more seriously. With a missing money-box and embezzled army funds to be accounted for, the families begin to realise that troubles can come to all, and nothing be taken for granted.
