Show Info

A new play by Eugene O’Brien
Directed by Jim Culleton

Performed by Andrew Bennett & Janet Moran

Olivier Award-winning company Fishamble returns to 59E59 Theaters as part of 1st Irish, following its previous, highly-acclaimed productions of Maz and Bricks, On Blueberry Hill, and others.

Set in County Offaly, Ireland during the weekend of a local wedding, guests Mairead and Mal are struggling to keep their marriage together. Perhaps attending a wedding will help, or it might raise questions that are difficult to answer. HEAVEN examines family bonds, life decisions, and the search for happiness in contemporary Ireland.

Part of Origin's 1st Irish

Fishamble is funded by the Arts Council, Dublin City Council, and Culture Ireland.
