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. 

Who stars in On Blueberry Hill?

This intense and beautifully written play is a two-hander and Niall Buggy and David Ganly have been holding their own on the stage in the roles since the play’s world premiere. The duo went on to play to houses in New York and Dublin and now are headed to London’s West End. 

Niall Buggy reprises his starring role as Christy. The Olivier Award-winning Irish actor has played film, television and theatre roles around the world.

helen m quinlivan11th March

Colleen Atkinson ORDER ID11th March

Excellent production

Gwen Barrett10th March

Captivating - pardon the pun. Superb spellbinding narrative as their stories unfold to the heart rending ending.

Carol Mccallum9th March

This is a beautifully crafted play , with melodic and stunning language. Niall Buggy’s performance was completely superb. What an actor! I know the set design was purposely dark and enclosed but this is theatre after all- and we the audience had to sit through gloom for the whole length which was irritating and visually tiring. This is a brilliant production . I found the subject matter harrowing and upsetting but I get easily upset .

Joelle Mccollum9th March

An intense show- all about the language. Excellent as ever from Barry.

Customer8th March

Excellent 100 minutes of emotionally charged Irish melodrama, beautifully acted. Funny and devastating in equal measure.

Joanne Weatherald8th March

All four of us loved it. Great acting and story. Would recommend it to others


The acting was raw committed and strong the writing was tight and apart from the moments where blueberry hill was sung I thought the spell was incredibly well sustained.

Ben Mackenzie8th March

Intimate and moving. Great writing!

customer s morgan8th March

Five Stars out of a possible five. I thought the play ,the acting and the staging were superb. If there is any justice both actors should get Oliviers.

Customer8th March

A riveting and stunningly well-acted two-hander. The audience was rapt as the beautifully written story unfolded; two hours flew by, we didn’t want it to end. With moments of warm humour this play was a delight. PS the staff at Trafalgar Studios were all friendly, efficient and excellent at their roles.
