On Blueberry Hill By Sebastian Barry
Published by Faber & Faber, 2017
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.’
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.
'ravishing… confirms the writers’s gift for finding the holiness in the everyday… the past they summon... almost blinds in its radiance before being swallowed by night... steeped in a luminous wonder'
- Ben Brantley, New York Times
