Irish Theatre of Chicago presents Mojo Mickybo

February 15 - 16, 2019
Irish Theatre of Chicago presents Mojo Mickybo
By Owen McCafferty
Directed by Jeff Christian

Irish Theatre of Chicago presents a vibrant and fast-paced one-act following two boys, masterfully played by Robert Kauzlaric and Dan Waller, growing up in Belfast during the summer of 1970. Mojo is from “up the road” and Mickybo from “over the bridge.” Their friendship centers on playing headers, pestering their parents and townsfolk, building huts, and day dreamily re-enacting Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid when encountering real or imagined friends and foes. The boys are blissfully unaware of the brewing sectarian violence coming that will change everything.

Enter·Action Friday, one hour before curtain in the Penote Performer's Hall, join Notre Dame faculty members Brian Ó Conchubhair, Irish Language & Literature, Susan Cannon Harris, English, and Siiri Scott, Film, Television, and Theatre, in a conversation about some of the influences and decisions that created the production.




No intermission.

This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Indiana Arts Commission and the Crane Group.

Co-sponsored by the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies and Notre Dame Film, Television, and Theatre. Made possible by the Thomas M. Hagerty Family Performing Arts Endowment for Excellence.
