“The Empty Charcoal Box” is the tragi-comic story of Billy Brewster and his two best friends, Eddie and Deansy. It tells of how a seemingly inconsequential event on their last day at school 45 years in the past has had a life-changing impact on all of them.
Now at the age of 60, the trio are confronted with that age old question which illuminates the path to wisdom. Should they look backwards to try to undo their mistakes, or forwards and try not to repeat them?
Their friendship, happiness and ultimately their lives will depend on making the right choice.
