Meet Donie Burris (Peter Gowen) who overcomes his troubles (his treacherous girlfriend, his overbearing Mam and the Midford Mafia) by imagining himself as “the star of his own gangster movie”. Country and Irish is the story of a man at the end of his tether who sets out to tell a tale like no other. McCabe’s theatrical triumph has picked up rave reviews, including “Simply glorious” (The Arts Review); “Taps the toes and twangs the heart strings” (Irish Independent); “Slick production and deft performance” (Irish Times).
Country And Irish by Patrick McCabe, directed by Conor Hanratty and presented by Fight2Flight Theatre in association with Smock Alley Theatre, comes to Ballina Arts Centre on 28th April at 8pm.
