The Good Thief by Conor McPherson
Fly on the Wall Theatre presents "The Good Thief" by acclaimed Irish Playwright, Conor McPherson.
When a seemingly routine job goes terribly wrong, a small-time thug finds himself on a desperate run across Ireland, trying to stay one step ahead of the police, his boss, and quite possibly the IRA.
Directed by Rod Ceballos (cited by Now Magazine for Outstanding Direction/2013 Toronto Fringe), "The Good Thief" will be presented at Dora Keogh's Irish Pub (141 Danforth Avenue) for 6 performances only.
"The Good Thief" features David Mackett, reprising a role he first performed at the 2006 Toronto Fringe. David received a Nomination for Outstanding Actor for his performance as John in Fly on the Wall's production of "Dublin Carol" (My Entertainment World Critics Pick Awards) and was cited by NOW Magazine for Outstanding Performance at the 2013 Toronto Fringe for "Cold Comfort".
The Good Thief is Conor McPherson's second play, for which he received the Stewart Parker Award for Playwriting in 1994. He won the George Devine Award in 1997 with his play St Nicholas, and went on to win an Olivier Award for Best New Play in 1999 with his follow-up, The Weir. In 2006 he received a Tony Award nomination for Shining City and an Olivier Award nomination for Best New Play for The Seafarer. He was named by The New York Times as the 'finest playwright of his generation'. McPherson's latest play, "The Girl from the North Country, with music from Bob Dylan", had its world premiere at the Old Vic theatre in July 2017 and transferred to the West End in January 2018. It's Canadian Premiere runs Sept 28 - Nov 24, 2019 at the Royal Alexandra Theatre.
Join us for a pint and a play as Fly on the Wall Theatre presents "The Good Thief" at Dora Keogh's Irish Pub on the Danforth.
