'Laughing wild amid severest woe' —Thomas Gray
The Irish do it best. Finding the comic in the tragic is a quintessential quality of Irish literature.
When things get bleak—what can you do but laugh?
Kevin Holohan reads from The Brothers’ Lot, a satirical and hilarious debut that explores religious hypocrisy in an Irish secondary school.
Honor Molloy reads from Smarty Girl – Dublin Savage, a wild child's struggle to hold her family together in 1960s Dublin.
Molloy and Holohan will be joined by performers Colin Lane, Maeve Price, and Christy McNamara.
Lane's acting credits range from New York’s own Irish Repertory Theater to Broadway. Price has performed at the Abbey Theatre and in venues across the United States. McNamara is a photographer and traditional musician who grew up surrounded by a family that played, sang, danced, and told stories. … his music is music of the soul.
