A Bed in the sticks, Lee Dunne’s sequel to Goodbye to the Hill opens with the hero, Paddy Maguire returning to Ireland after a short and dismal sojourn to England. He is bowed but undeaten and with his usual optimism embarks on an exploration of stage craft with a touring theatrical company as it winds its way through the small towns of 1950s rural Ireland. Paddy’s theatrics on and off the stage, make for a warm, funny and insightful perspective on the times and the growing pains of a man/boy.
