When & Where
Castleblayney Players present Philadelphia, Here I Come! by Brian Friel.
Gar has announced that he is leaving Ireland to get work in America. Excited though he is about the prospect of a new life away from a domineering but uncommunicative father, his doubts about leaving his home town emerge on the night before he leaves.
This play is, at times, hilariously funny; other times it is poignant with deep emotion. The play has been one of Friel’s most popular since it was first produced in 1964, and it has been a standard on the Leaving Cert syllabus.
Castleblayney Players presented this play as their first production in 1991. They are delighted to have some of the older hands still treading the boards as well as giving a chance to their younger members to bring their talent to new audiences.
