The Irish Play

Dublin, 1975. Liam – a 32 county enthusiast - is gathered with friends on the night of his 25th birthday. He and his girlfriend Suzy, a rebellious British runaway, are set to travel north to join the IRA, while their roommates Cian, an idealistic American playwright and his pregnant girlfriend Nora, strive to dissuade Liam from the radical path he has chosen. When an unexpected birthday ‘gift’ throws Liam’s plans awry, the friends are thrust into a hilariously tangled web of Fenian tirades, personal loyalties and outstanding ESB bills!

The play was performed in the Irish Arts Centre in New York to a six-week extended, sold-out run just over ten years ago. This year, we are excited to be collaborating with McGillicuddy to bring his acclaimed comedy home to Irish shores.
