The Salvage Shop, set in the seaside town of Garris, hinges on the fraught relationship between Sylvie Tansey, maestro of the local brass band reluctant to relinquish his position, and his forebearing son, Eddie.

The consoling force of opera and the music of the band provides a soundtrack for the ambitions, great and small, of the several characters in Jim Nolan’s touching play, and for their inabilities and efforts to connect as they negotiate ways to salve the wounds of a family and the sores of a community.

A richly-layered drama to be stored in the memory and revisited time and again to retrieve its subtle wisdom.

David Nowlan, The Irish Times
