Philadelphia, Here I Come!
By Brian Friel | Directed by Frank Galati
Gar O’Donnell is leaving Ballybeg and the Ireland of his childhood. Leaving his father and the lads. Leaving Kate. For across the ocean there’s a dream of Cadillacs, drive-ins, Coke floats, and girls – a dream of America. The play that established Brian Friel (Dancing at Lughnasa, Molly Sweeney) as one of the greatest theatrical voices in the English language, Philadelphia, Here I Come! paints a touching and humorous portrait of a young man on the verge of a new beginning.

“Pitch-perfect story-telling… heartbreaking and hilarious.”
