The story is set in Dublin before and during the Easter Risings in 1916. This was the beginning of the Irish Revolution which eventually led to the forming of the new Irish Republic and Northern Ireland as we know it today.
Two boys grew up as friends and would meet to swim in the sea, which was one of the only times they could truly be together. Staged entirely in water the work juxtaposes the developing love affair between two young men with political turmoil in Ireland and the slaughter on the Western Front – contrasting the dream of national liberation and the search for personal freedom.
