WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A warm and funny play set in the 1960s when the notorious Brendan Behan absconded from Ireland to New York and set up residence in the bohemian Chelsea Hotel where his neighbors included Arthur Miller, Bob Dylan and other artists. He's drunk, broke, hung over and way past the delivery date of his latest book; then a wire arrives from Dublin with the kind of news that's guaranteed to put his blood pressure through the roof.
