Italy 1-Ireland 0... The score that marked Ireland's demoralizing exit from the World Cup Italia 1990 took its toll. No more so than on Janet and Joe Brady of Parnell Street, who lost far more than the match that night. Some years on, they reveal the intimacies of their love and the rupture of their marriage as well as their enduring love affair with Dublin city itself. The Pride of Parnell Street is an intimate, heroic tale of ordinary and extraordinary life on the streets of Dublin.
Fishamble's world premiere of The pride of Parnell Street opened at the Tricycle Theatre in London and as part of the Dublin Festival at the Tivoli Theatre in 2007. The production makes its NYC premiere at 1st Irish at 59E59 Theaters after successful tours through Ireland, France, Germany and at the Arts & Ideas Festival in New Haven, CT.
