In Rehearsal: Beyond the Brooklyn Sky

Presented in association with Dublin Theatre Festival as part of Festival On Tour

Written by Michael Hilliard Mulcahy
Directed by Peter Sheridan


They grew up together, dreamed together and emigrated together from the West Kerry town of Brandon in the late eighties. America didn’t quite fulfil their dreams and they returned home, chastened but wiser. Things happened between them out foreign, things of the heart and things of the purse, things that were never resolved. And now they gather to welcome home one of their own, Jack Flynn, who has flown solo across the Atlantic. It should be a celebration…But the ordinary can be extraordinary – Can Greg and Mags rekindle their childhood love, can Brendy and Josie stop their marriage from splitting apart as he prepares to take to the seas on a voyage of his own…will Jamesie find the truth about his son Jimmy – lost on the streets of Brooklyn…The past is a powder keg waiting to explode…the only question is who will strike the first match.

Tuesday 25th – Saturday 29th September 2012 @ 8pm

About Civic Theatre

The Civic Theatre's Mission is to mount an artistic and challenging programme of contemporary and classical Irish and international work in Theatre, Dance, Opera and Music for the community of South Dublin county and environs. History The Civic Theatre, opened in March 1999, a project of South Dublin County Council and also grant aided by the Department of Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht and the Islands. The first production at The Civic Theatre Tallaght was Howie the Rookie by Mark O'Rowe, directed by Mike Bradwell and starring Aidan Kelly and Karl Shiels. It opened on the 23rd March 1999. Since opening we have developed relationships with most Irish theatre companies and most opera, contemporary dance, ballet and children's theatre companies, developing healthy audiences for these. We are particularly proud of our co-productions – to date we've produced; or co-produced 22 plays, involving new Irish writing. We have hosted wonderful international productions, fantastic local work, and we have had some terrific nights of music on stage at the Civic.
