A raw, boozy ramble through the life of Mike MacDonnell — reluctant boss, fitful husband and wayward soul. Together with a ragtag cast of characters — bums, femme fatales, gin-soaked sages and madcaps — he shuffles from antic misadventure to violent confrontation, to the edge of nowhere and back again. Barrooms is a wry exploration of friendship, love, loss and the ineffable things that keep us defying the odds we book against ourselves.
