Season 26

Aug 26, 2013–Sep 28, 2013

Acclaimed director Jonathan Berry makes his Strawdog debut at the helm of Tom Murphy’s 1985 Irish classic. After 10 years chasing his dreams in America, Michael returns home to Galway to reconnect with old friends and rekindle old flames. However, over the course of the evening, and the downing of many pints at the White House Pub, his romanticism of the past collides with the realities of a world that has abandoned the idealism of his youth and Michael must now face what he has become.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED… director Jonathan Berry once again displays his gift for creating a pitch-perfect ensemble…”
