The Tiger’s Tail
Liam O’Leary, an Irish property developer of humble origins who has become rich and powerful on the back of the ”Celtic Tiger” the name given to Ireland’s illustrious economic boom. His hubris has led him into a scheme to build a national stadium, but a rival developer has connived to thwart his plans. Wildly over-extended, Liam finds himself struggling in a receding market. Stressed and over-stretched, he seems on the verge of a mental breakdown when, to his horror, he sees his Double. Confronting his Double, Liam discovers a shocking truth about his past, a truth that makes him ask himself and others: ”who am I?”.
