Irish Rep presents Hugh Leonard's Tony-winning classic memory play set in Dublin in the 1960s. More…
Charlie returns to his childhood home after his father’s funeral only to find the stubborn patriarch’s ghost unwilling to leave the house. As Charlie rummages through his father’s belongings, he surrenders to his own memories, both hilarious and wrenching, as the complexity of his upbringing comes alive before his eyes.
See it if you love Irish plays filled w/off-beat chars. DA is your classic dysfunctional Irish family. Script was lacking (altho it won major awards).
Don't see it if you want an uplifting story. Mean-spirited chars abound. Set was cramped on small IRep stage. C Moore always gets good perfs from her actors
See it if if you love Irish theatre but lower expectations. Irish Rep is not at they're home and this production doesn't live up to their standards.
Don't see it if you're not a fan of Irish playwrights, culture, and humor.
