WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Now a successful London-based writer, Charlie returns to his Dublin boyhood home after the death of his adoptive father. His "Da" had always been a little maddening, but now he's even more impossible dead! Da's ghost won't leave Charlie alone and butts into Charlie's mind for unasked-for advice, truisms, and wildly-biased recollections of still painful events. Premiering in 1973, Da won a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding New Play, a New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play, and a Tony Award for Best Play. Mostly known in the U.S. for Da, author Hugh Leonard has a special place in Olney's history. We are proud to have been the first theater to produce this work (1973), prior to its extremely successful and lauded Broadway run.
