Our first Main Stage production of the year is this delightful, moving comedy. A Hollywood production crew has come to a small town on the coast of Ireland, and the clash of cultures has hilarious – and heart wrenching – results.
Jake and Charlie are thirty-somethings who meet when working as extras on a big American movie being shot in Ireland. Charlie's video shop in Ballycastle has gone bankrupt and Jake has returned to Kerry after a futile few years in the US. The movie is a wonderful break from worrying about their futures, until the harsh realities of rural life break through.
