'I was born to be a New Yorker.' Ireland and America collide. From the red-brick suburbs of Ranelagh to the giddy heights of 1950s Manhattan, one woman - the iconic Maeve Brennan - made the leap.
Daughter of a famous revolutionary father, she threw herself into the glamour of New York literary circles while writing heartbreaking stories of a very different world back in Dublin. Beautiful, mercurial and devastatingly truthful in her work, she fascinated the world, including the brilliant and volatile men in her life at The New Yorker.
Award-winning Emma Donoghue, author of the world-wide bestseller room, returns to the theatre with this dazzling world première inspired by the life and work of a pioneering writer and remarkable woman.
