with Niall Buggy and David Ganly
Following the play's U.S. premiere at 59E59 Theaters in 2019 and more recently a run in London’s West End with Trafalgar Theatre Productions in 2020, cut short by the Covid-19 pandemic, Olivier Award-winning Fishamble, and current Laureate of Irish Fiction, Sebastian Barry, reunite for a special digital presentation of ON BLUEBERRY HILL.
Fishamble is delighted to bring together Niall Buggy and David Ganly, once again, in this production which critics called ‘superb’ (Irish Times), ‘phenomenal’ (Sunday Independent), and ‘Beautiful. Mesmerizing. Mysterious’ (The New Yorker).
Directed by Fishamble’s Jim Culleton, ON BLUEBERRY HILL is bursting with humanity, as it explores forgiveness, survival and, ultimately, love. In Barry’s beautiful style, ON BLUEBERRY HILL features best of friends and worst of enemies. Christy (Niall Buggy) and PJ (David Ganly), who are destined to share their lives for twenty years. As the two men reflect on the hope and torment of life outside – they slowly uncover the events that have led them to their world with explosive, bittersweet consequences.
ON BLUEBERRY HILL was developed and produced in 2017 and 2019 with the support of Arts Council Ireland, and has toured internationally to the CCI in Paris and 59E59 Theatres as part of 1st Irish in New York, with the support of Culture Ireland.
