On Blueberry Hill
"Now we’ve lived together in contentment, more or less, for nigh on twenty year, like turtle doves – In prison! I mean, for fuck’s sake, the chances of that."
2016 Olivier Award winner Fishamble, and 2017 Costa Novel of the Year Award winner Sebastian Barry, reunite for the world premiere production of On Blueberry Hill. Following the much loved The Pride Of Parnell Street in Dublin Theatre Festival, ten years ago, director Jim Culleton has assembled the same award-winning creative team for On Blueberry Hill.
In Sebastian Barry’s unique style, On Blueberry Hill features best of friends and worst of enemies Christy and PJ, played by Niall Buggy and David Ganly. This new play is bursting with humanity, as it explores murder, forgiveness, survival and, ultimately, love in the prison of the human heart.
‘Ireland’s terrific Fishamble’ The Guardian (2015)
