The Pride of Parnell Street

Sebastian Barry

Set in September 1999, the play explores through interconnecting monologues the love and breakup between Janet and Joe, an estranged couple, as well as their enduring love affair with Dublin city itself. In this intimate tale of ordinary and extraordinary life on the streets of Dublin, Barry depicts with vivid tenderness the devastating effects of public and private acts of violence.
