Overview

From novelist and screenwriter Roddy Doyle come these two colorful plays. both set in the North Dublin suburb of Barrytown. In Brownbread, three young men kidnap a bishop but soon come to realize–when the U.S. Marines invade–that their brilliant adventure is nothing more than a colossal mistake. War is set at the Hiker’s Rest, a pub where two trivia addicts meet every month to answer questions posed by Denis trhe quizmaster who hates wrong answers and shoots to kill. These earthy, exuberant works show why The New York Times Book Review says Doyle’s “versatility and brio…may shock the neighbors, but…you can’t take your eyes off him.”
