WINNER Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best New Comedy

A small village in rural Ireland is turned upside down when a major Hollywood film studio descends to make a historical blockbuster on location. The story is told through the eyes of Charlie Conlon and Jake Quinn, employed as extras along with numerous other locals. As cultures clash, it becomes clear that Tinseltown’s romanticized dream of Ireland is a long, long way from reality. Through their eyes, a multitude of extraordinary characters come to life, ranging from the spoilt American starlet to the English director and the village old timer.
