Itc Pineapple New

By Phillip McMahon
Directed by Siiri Scott 

In the notoriously dangerous neighborhood of Ballymun, Paula struggles to free her family from generational poverty, while her sister, Roxanna is only interested in herself, boys, and Bacardi Breezers. When the unknown shows up at her door, will Paula be willing to take a chance on love? Pineapple is a beautifully warm and bitingly funny play from Dublin writer/director Phillip McMahon (Come on Home). 

Enter>Action  Stay after the play for a talk about themes that resonate here and abroad. 

For mature audiences. No intermission. 


Co-sponsored by the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies and Notre Dame Film, Television, and Theatre. Made possible by the Thomas M. Hagerty Family Performing Arts Endowment for Excellence and the Peg and Rick Golden Endowment for Excellence.
