On Blueberry Hill from Fishamble
From the Olivier Award-winning Irish Theatre Company, Fishamble and award-winning Laureate of Irish Fiction Sebastian Barry, On Blueberry Hill is a beautifully intense two-hander that explores murder, forgiveness, survival and love in the prison of the human heart.
Two men who are at once the best of friends and arch rivals are forced to share their lives and their space with each other. As PJ (David Ganly) and Christy (Niall Buggy) reminisce about the highs and lows of a life on the outside, they slowly begin to walk down the road that led to them sharing their stories, and their cell.
This play bursts to life and shows the unintended and dramatic consequences that led to the men being where they now find themselves.
