My English Tongue, My Irish Heart
« on: May 06, 2015, 07:05:07 PM »
Did anyone see this play, it was in Belfast last week but I had to return the day before the show?  It heard it was great so have booked to see it in London at the end of this month.

Gary and Susan are young, educated and Irish. When they can't settle in Ireland, they take the momentous decision to emigrate to England. What ghosts will they meet along the way and where will their journey really take them?My English Tongue, My Irish Heart takes us on an emotional and psychological journey, in which Gary and Susan's story of love, loss and change is criss-crossed by the stories of those who have gone before them, from lawyers and labourers to pickpockets, politicians and professional street preachers.Based on an acclaimed study of Irish lives in Britain by Dr Liam Harte, Martin Lynch's powerful and moving new drama gives voice to the perplexities of living with, and between, two worlds. There is sorrow, struggle and laughter, and everywhere, the question: where is home for the migrant?Telling the story of Irish emigration to England through the generations, Lynch's highly innovative play, which boasts a top-notch cast, explodes in a fast-paced, promenade production featuring great songs, dance and Lynch's trademark humour. You will meet some of the greatest characters ever to catch the Holyhead boat or a Ryanair flight.Oh, did we mention that audience members can take an active part in the play?Written and directed by Martin Lynch based on the book: The Literature of The Irish in Britain: Autobiography and Memoir,  1725 – 2001 by Dr Liam Harte.

Martin Lynch is a terrific playwright.

I would suggest the title of this one is based on a songtitle by Morrissey.
