26 Sep 2012
Fat Violet Theater in association with The Drilling Company presents 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 is 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.
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.
