Olivier Award-winning company Fishamble returns to 59E59 Theaters as part of 1st Irish, following its previous, highly-acclaimed productions of On Blueberry Hill, Little Thing/Big Thing, Charolais, I Can See Clearly Now, and The Pride of Parnell Street.
Maz is planning to attend a pro-choice demonstration. Bricks is planning to take his daughter to the zoo. But, as the day unfolds, nothing goes to plan and the two become unlikely friends, changing each other in ways they never thought possible.
Fishamble is an Irish theater company that is passionate about discovering, developing, and producing new plays of national importance with a global reach, while championing the role of the playwright. It harnesses the imaginative power of theater to provide audiences with a diverse range of contemporary, compelling, and heartfelt dramatic works, and typically supports over 50% of the writers of all new plays produced on the island of Ireland each year.
Fishamble thinks nationally and reaches globally, touring its productions to audiences throughout Ireland, and to 19 other countries, and has received many awards in Ireland and internationally, including an Olivier Award.
Fishamble is funded by the Arts Council, Dublin City Council, and Culture Ireland.
