Brighton Beach Memoirs
Bridge Drama have qualified for the RTE All-Ireland Drama Finals 2019!
'Brighton Beach Memoirs,' by Neil Simon.
Directed by Pat Whelan
Meet Eugene Jerome and his family, fighting the hard times and sometimes each other – with laughter, tears and love. It is 1937 in Brooklyn during the heart of the Depression and Eugene lives in Brighton Beach with his family. He is witty, perceptive, obsessed with sex and forever fantasising his baseball triumphs as star pitcher for the New York Yankees. As our guide through his “memoirs”, Eugene takes us through a series of trenchant observations and insights that show his family meeting life’s challenges with pride, spirit and a marvellous sense of humour. But as World War II looms ever close, Eugene sees his own innocence slipping away as the first important era of his life ends and a new one begins.
As part of our Pre-All Ireland preparations, this show will return to the
The Dun Mhuire Theatre on 5th & 7th May
