After sellout success in Ireland and New York, On Blueberry Hill transfers to London's Trafalgar Studios. In his first new play in over ten years, Laureate of Irish Fiction and prize-winning writer Sebastian Barry explores the complexity of regret, forgiveness and survival.
On Blueberry Hill arrives on the West End with a flurry of good reviews: the New York Times enthused about a 'radiant' and 'ravishing' while the Independent described 'compelling' storytelling and 'first-rate' writing.
The lyrical play follows Christy and PJ, two prisoners who spend their forced confinement together reminiscing about the past. From their cell in Dublin's Moutjoy jail, the men reflect on the quotidian life they took for granted. From this poignant regret, the drama escalates with pacy revelations and violent twists revealing how Christ and PJ ended up incarcerated in the first place.
Eminent Irish actors Niall Buggy (Uncle Vanya, Juno and the Paycock) and David Ganly (Girl From the North Country, Shakespeare in Love) reprise their roles after glowing reviews in both Dublin and New York.
