Maeve’s House on tour 2015

This May, Maeve’s House by Eamon Morrissey embarks on a ten venue tour around Ireland as part of the Bealtaine Festival.

Step inside Maeve’s House in this delightful one man show by 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 in The New Yorker. He was compelled to meet this enigmatic and mysterious woman.

This delightful one-man show, based on the life and work of Maeve Brennan, features extracts from Maeve Brennan’s writing and presents a moving portrait of two artists in conversation across generations.

The world premiere of Maeve’s House sold out at the Peacock theatre. Now, this Irish tour gives you the opportunity to enjoy this charming and intriguing performance from one of Ireland’s best-loved actors.
