by Frank and Malachy McCourt, with Irish tunes and ballads
Sheri Lee Miller, Stage Director
Jim Peterson, Music Director

With this ferociously rollicking account of the McCourt Brothers’ life in impoverished Ireland and their escape to America, poverty and strife has never been so funny. Tim Kniffin and Steven Abbott take on a panoply of characters from relatives to rogues, fools to petty tyrants. It’s the hilarious upside to McCourt’s bestseller, “Angela’s Ashes.” As one critic claimed, “If you don’t have a good evening, you should have yourself checked to make sure you didn’t die during the day.”
