Donie Burris has a whole heap of troubles facing him: with his girlfriend, her son, Albanian gangsters, the Midford mafia and a very overbearing mammy. How can he get them all off his back?

He imagines himself as the star of his own gangster movie, and he won’t go down without a fight…

Fight 2Flight Theatre presents Patrick McCabe’s play Country and Irish, a hilarious but savage portrait of a man at the end of his rope, starring Peter Gowen. It is a wild joyride that pays homage to film noir, Samuel Beckett and even the Teletubbies – a startling, provocative fever dream. Featuring a soundtrack of terrific music worthy of the title. Country and Irish is like nothing else you’ll see this year.

Duration: 65 MINS - No interval

 

★★★★ “McCabe’s absurd tragic-comedy brought to life in a crowning performance by Peter Gowen, making for an unforgettable encounter" - The Arts Review

"Pat McCabe has done a skillful job in bringing his anti-hero to life… sad and funny in equal parts… The play is more than well served by a layered and touching performance by Peter Gowen"
- Emer O’Kelly, Sunday Independent
