This hilarious play has been compared to a mixture of Father Ted and Martin McDonagh. The Flags centres on Howie and JJ, lifeguards on the second worst beach in Ireland, strewn with litter, a dead cow and a burnt-out car.
They have ambitions to fill the vacant lifeguard positions on the golden sands at Banna beach. However, they must first overcome an eagle-eyed inspection from their boss Brendan, who has a secret agenda of his own. The inept pair, who have lost their lifeguard manual, are thrown into further turmoil by the arrival of a mysterious young woman with surprising intentions.
