This area is gone to the fucking dogs. Gary returns home from college to confront age-old rivalries, bitter disputes, and bin bags that just won't stop falling from the sky. As Gary and his old friend Martin fight to find their place in the world, their mothers desperately search for meaning in a life that has already passed them by. Will Gary leave the estate forever or return to the rubbish heap? The Waste Ground Party was published to coincide with the Abbey Theatre debut of award-winning playwright Shaun Dunne.
