@8pm Admission £12
The Craic Theatre is delighted to present this classic Irish play.
Fed up with the dreary round of life in Ballybeg, with his uncommunicative father, his humiliating job at his father’s grocery shop, his frustrated love for Kate Doogan who married a richer, more successful young man and with the total absence of prospect and opportunity in his life at home, Gareth O’Don- nell has accepted his aunt’s invitation to come to Philadelphia. On the eve
of his departure, despite the fantasies Gar entertains of life in America, all it would take to stop him leaving would be one word of affection from his father or Kate, or a word of genuine understanding from his friends.
