It was as if the magazine in my hands had become a mirror.
Step inside Maeve’s House in this delightful one man show by Eamon Morrissey, one of Ireland’s best loved actors.
Maeve Brennan was one of our greatest short story writers. Although she lived in New York, many of her finest stories are set in 48 Cherryfield Avenue, Ranelagh, Dublin where she grew up.
By coincidence Eamon Morrissey was brought up in the same house. While performing on Broadway, Eamon was surprised to discover his family home in Maeve’s vivid writing inThe New Yorker. He was compelled to meet this enigmatic and mysterious woman.
This beautiful poignant story features extracts from Maeve Brennan’s writing and presents a moving portrait of two artists in conversation across generations.
Three of Eamon’s one man shows The Brother, Patrick Gulliver and Joyceman have premiered on the Peacock stage. Eamon is also a well known face on RTÉ’s Fair City.
Maeve’s House will travel to the Irish Arts Center, New York following it’s run in the Dublin Theatre Festival 2013.
