Five women come together to help clear out a run-down cottage a week before the wedding of its new owner, Una. Joining her on this hen night of sorts are her two best friends, Kelly and Tríona, and her soon to be mother-in-law, Olive, and Olive's best friend, Anta. But Una is keeping a secret that, if revealed, will destroy all hopes of her dream wedding and living happily ever after with the love of her life. As the play unfolds we see the women, one by one, forced to confront awkward truths of their own.
