Romance is a distant memory for two lonely animal lovers living in Dublin. When forlorn Dan and his dog Chapatti cross paths with the amiable Betty and her nineteen cats, an unexpected spark sets in motion the journey of two people tenuously rediscovering the importance of human companionship.  The play’s deft mix of heartache, despair and tender comedy leaves one cheering for these two characters’ hard-won moment of happiness.
