05 Mar 2014
"Irish Rover" (Dubliners and The Pogues). A collaboration between two of Celtic music's greatest bands, the classic sound of The Dubliners and the new sound of The Pogues. The song is an epic tale of a ship and its crew. Spoiler Alert: There is drinking, and it does not end well.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
