Maurice Walsh's The Quiet Man
This special "pub version" of Maurice Walsh's The Quiet Man has been a favorite with audiences around the country for the past 2 years. Those familiar with the John Ford film The Quiet Man will recognize much of the story, although this play is based on Green Rushes, a set of stories by Walsh published in 1935. All the stories involve men and women whose lives were changed forever by the Irish War of Independence (1919-1921). One of those men, Paddy Bawn Enright, had been a famous boxer in America. When he returns to Ireland, he fights in a flying column (guerilla fighters), but when the war is over, he vows to never fight again. But when he falls in love with the beautiful sister of the local land-hungry bully, he finds that his fighting days aren't quite over.

Directed by Si Osborne

"Bursts of song, heartbreak, comedy, chicanery, horse racing, displays of friendship, and one knock-down-and-drag-out fist fightmake this tapestry of Irish lifeso rich and vivid."   HEDY WEISS, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
