Continuing the highly successful Peacock New Play Series, Brothers of the Brush is a first play from an exciting new writing talent, Jimmy Murphy. Set in comtemporary Dublin and based on the author's own experiences as a housepainter, Brothers of the Brush explores, in an often humorous manner, the issues of survival in times of recession. It is the story of three painters who are forced by a wily contractor to work in dismal conditions while they secretly draw the dole. The men's struggle for respect and entitlement forces them to make some stark moral choices.
