Quotes & Highlights

“An inventive and riotously funny comedy.” —Associated Press


Written by Marie Jones

Directed by Courtney O’Connor

A rural Irish village is turned upside down by the arrival of an American film crew. When Charlie and Jake are cast as extras in the movie, they discover that Hollywood’s romanticized Ireland stands in stark contrast to the reality of their daily lives. Winner of the 2001 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, the play features two actors taking on more than a dozen eccentric characters, from the film’s spoiled American starlet to the star-struck locals.
