ITG: Philadelphia, Here I Come! (26-30 March 2019)

Performances on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th March ALREADY SOLD OUT.

You’re 25 years old and about to leave everything – and everyone – you have ever known or loved. You are leaving for America tomorrow, a New World you only know from films, music, and a couple of rather annoying relatives. The only company you will have on the trip is your inner voice; a voice that can speak the truth in a way that your outer voice, sadly, can’t …

Philadelphia, Here I Come! is simultaneously set within the confines of the small fictional Irish town of Ballybeg and in the limitless universe that is the inner voice and mind of Gareth O’Donnell, a young man on the cusp of emigrating to Philadelphia. A classic tragicomedy that established Brian Friel’s reputation as an innovative playwright.

Welcome to an evening of laughter, sadness and recognition of what it is like to fly the nest.

Anna Holmén brings this masterpiece to life for the Irish Theatre Group asbl at :
