About the show

Dublin playwright Derek Murphy takes us inside the home of the Kelly women as they prepare to grieve the imminent death of their patriarch, and they would grieve if only he’d get on with it.  More…

A murdered cabbage, a missing eye, and a haunted toilet, the Kellys are falling apart while trying hard not to come together. Part of the 10th anniversary season of Origin’s 1st Irish, New York's annual festival of Irish theater.
