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.
"Funniest play I've seen in years...Greek tragedy filtered through Mel Brooks...'Dyin' For It' concerns the father of a dysfunctional family who's been sent home from the hospital so he could die in his own bed...Murphy's comic genius taps the explosive humor in coupling the ordinary with the outrageous...The quartet of performers could give lessons in ensemble playing. They are all superb...The dazzling split-second timing must be credited to the splendid direction of Keating." Full Review
See it if Acting was excellent. Play was entertaining & funny. Venue was cute, very intimate. The dark humor reminded me of the Coen Brothers.
Don't see it if ...you won't enjoy a play about a dysfunctional family involving the topics of patricide & incest.
