'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 Dave Sidman.
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. Dave Sidman has been picking melodies on Irish and Old-Time tunes for over 40 years, performing at festivals and venues such as NEFFA, Theatre80, the Eagle Tavern, Passim, Swift’s, Slainte, etc., and with artists such as Christy McNamara, Kenny Kosek, Jimmy Coen and many others.
