The Curragh prisoner of war camp in Kildare County, Ireland provides the backdrop and inspiration for The Brylcreem Boys, a unique war-time drama, exploring love and friendship amidst the bitter conflict of World War II. Stranger than fiction, The Brylcreem Boys brings an unusual chapter in Irish history into the present with a delightful mix of romance, humour and adventure.
