This is a synopsis for one of bg's plays.  Hope he doesn't mind I posted it here...but I think it shows how simply one needs to grab a reader.



It's midnight on the night before the Leaving Certificate Examination English paper. Six students barricade themselves into a room in a heritage centre demanding an end to the Leaving Certificate. The room was once home to a man who died on hunger strike in an English prison during the War of Independence. He charted a course for himself and stuck to it. Have these present-day protesters the courage of their conviction, and just how far will they go to prove their point? 'The Leaving' is an exploration of the nature of commitment to an ideal.
