An official selection of the 2019 Origin’s 1st Irish Theatre Festival

By Sebastian Barry
Directed by Jim Culleton

Following its world premiere at Dublin Theatre Festival 2017, Olivier Award-winning Fishamble (Swing; Little Thing, Big Thing; The Pride of Parnell Street; Pat Kinevane’s Forgotten, Silent, and Underneath) brings Sebastian Barry’s critically-acclaimed production of On Blueberry Hill to New York. Featuring Niall Buggy and David Ganly as best of friends and worst of enemies, Christy and PJ, this new play is bursting with humanity as it explores murder, forgiveness, survival, and ultimately, love in the prison of the human heart.

“It’s hard to find a word that captures it adequately. ‘Superb’ will have to do.”
