Following the critically-acclaimed world premiere production as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival 2017, Olivier Award-winning Fishamble, and current Laureate of Irish Fiction Sebastian Barry, reunite for the revival tour of On Blueberry Hill to New York and on national tour in Ireland in 2019. Fishamble are delighted to bring together Niall Buggy and David Ganly once again, in this production which critics called ‘superb’ (Irish Times), ‘phenomenal’ (Sunday Independent), and ‘outstanding’ (RTÉ Arena). In Sebastian Barry’s unique style, On Blueberry Hill features best of friends and worst of enemies Christy and PJ, played by Niall Buggy and David Ganly. This new play is bursting with humanity, as it explores murder, forgiveness, survival and, ultimately, love in the prison of the human heart.
