On Blueberry Hill by Sebastian Barry

presented by Fishamble

‘Now we’ve lived together in contentment, more or less, for nigh on twenty year.  Like turtle doves. – In prison, I mean, for fuck’s sake, the chances of that.’

Following the critically-acclaimed world premiere production as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival 2017, Olivier Award-winning Fishamble, and current Laureate of Irish Fiction Sebastian Barry, reunite for the revival tour of On Blueberry Hill to New York and on national tour in Ireland in 2019.  Fishamble are delighted to bring together Niall Buggy and David Ganly once again, in this production which critics called ‘superb’ (Irish Times), ‘phenomenal’ (Sunday Independent), and ‘outstanding’ (RTÉ Arena).  In Sebastian Barry’s unique style, On Blueberry Hill features best of friends and worst of enemies Christy and PJ, played by Niall Buggy and David Ganly. This new play is bursting with humanity, as it explores murder, forgiveness, survival and, ultimately, love in the prison of the human heart.

Written by Sebastian Barry
Directed by Jim Culleton
Dramaturgy Gavin Kostick

Fishamble is an Olivier Award-winning internationally acclaimed Irish theatre company, dedicated to the discovery, development and production of new work.

Sweet about Me

by Jacinta Sheerin

Sweet about Me by Jacinta Sheerin
Wed 6 – Thurs 7 Mar

Sweet About Me, written and performed by glór’s Associate Artist Jacinta Sheerin, is a one woman show about addiction. Set in a treatment centre and based on the lives of five characters, Sweet About Me explores alcohol, heroin and cocaine addiction through the eyes of the central character - 18 year old Bernadette Fagan who has an eating disorder, a controlling mother and a body image to die for.  But food issues seem so trivial in comparison to the people with real problems like shooting heroin? Or does it?  Sweet About Me looks at how society views and ranks addiction. It aims to dispel myths and open our hearts to the toughest characters that we might judge in an every-day encounter.

Jacinta Sheerin is a playwright, actor and dramatherapist from Dublin, living in Ennistymon, Co. Clare. Jacinta has recently become one of glór’s three Associate Artists, and we are delighted to premiere her new work in 2019.
