Fat Violet Theater in association with The Drilling Company will present Ronan Noone's Brendan, about an Irish immigrant discovering a new life in America, Sept. 26-30 at the Drilling Company Theatre in NYC.
Directed by David Sullivan, the cast includes Dashiell Eaves (A Behanding in Spokane, Coram Boy, 1776), Kelly McAndrew (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Sean Michael Bowles, Kevin Melendez and Nancy Walsh.
Here's how the work is billed: "A recent Irish immigrant, Brendan now calls America home. But when a letter from Ireland brings more than just shocking news, Brendan struggles to find love and meaning in his new life. From award-winning playwright Ronan Noone comes a funny, evocative and wonderfully touching play about love, loss and coming to terms with leaving the past behind you."
Brendan will be offered Sept. 26 at 7 PM, Sept. 27 and Sept. 29 at 9 PM and Sept. 30 at 1 PM as part of the 1st Irish Festival.
