After a sell-out run at the Abbey Theatre and an international tour to New York, Maeve’s House is back on tour as part of Bealtaine festival. This delightful one man show is written by and stars Eamon Morrissey, one of Ireland’s best loved actors.
Maeve Brennan was one of our greatest short story writers. Although she lived in New York, many of her stories are set in 48 Cherryfield Avenue, Ranelagh, Dublin where she grew up. By coincidence Eamon Morrissey was brought up in the same house. While performing on Broadway, Eamon was surprised to discover his family home in Maeve’s vivid writing in The New Yorker. He was compelled to meet this enigmatic and mysterious woman. This beautiful poignant story features extracts from Maeve Brennan’s writing and presents a moving portrait of two artists in conversation across generations.
