    In Da, we meet Charlie, an expatriate writer who has been living in London for many years returns to his childhood home, Dalkey, Dublin County, after his father's funeral.


    His father's ghost appears and Charlie must confront his relationships with the two father figures in his life: "Da", his adoptive father, and Drumm, a cynical civil servant who becomes his mentor. This Tony Award winning comedy examines the complexities of fatherhood, family, and the ties that bind. Da has been hailed as "a beguiling play about a son's need to come to terms with his father and a class with the best of O'Casey".


    Da won the 1978 Drama Desk Award Outstanding New Play, the 1978 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play, and the 1978 Tony Award for Best Play. Hugh Leonard was in fact the first Irish Playwright to win the Tony Award for Best Play. Featuring: Dan McGlaughlin, Kelly Filios, Lee Stover, Mary Pat Walsh, Mark Knight, Susan Giddings, Oliver Donahue and John Cannon.

    Plays and Players Mainstage is accessible. Restrooms are downstairs, but assistance is available.
    $15 - $25
