I really enjoyed the play. It was interesting and funny and a little spooky. It was a good night out and I highly recommend.

If you love Irish accents and can take a frequent F bomb, it was very funny and a well written play. The set was fantastic too.

The play started out slowly. Initially the accents were hard to understand but you quickly get acclimated. It was entertaining but not as scary as I thought it would be. The acting was decent. The older gentlemen were GREAT and younger man and...continued

Featuring Kevin Adams, David Jourdan, Susan Marie Rhea, Mick Tinder, and Jon Townson

On a chilly night in a cozy Irish pub, four friends and one stranger form a redemptive circle of friendship through a round of conversation and storytelling.

The Keegan Theatre’s connection to Ireland and Irish theater is well recognized – since its founding, the company has produced more than 20 Irish works – and is highlighted by the company’s annual Ireland tour.  “Anytime we approach an Irish play, our pulse quickens a bit,” says Mark Rhea. “Simply put: It’s our first and greatest love, and something that Keegan has a history of doing exceptionally well. Thanks to the annual tour to Ireland, we have a close relationship with Irish artists, and a deep, hands-on appreciation of Irish culture and history, as well as a familiarity and comfort level in approaching these plays.”
