Frankie’s dead. And no-one’s quite sure why. The lads are bereft, but the 5-a-side is still booked for Monday night. As we flash back through Frankie’s last day on earth, we discover that the people who still want him here might be the reason he’s not. So Here We Are is a play about what can happen when nothing happens.
