“If you don’t have a good evening, you should have yourself checked to make sure you haven’t died during the day.” -Malachy McCourt
On St. Patricks day, you can mosey on down the road to Beverly’s intimate Larcom Theatre, and see the only Boston area performance of the critically acclaimed Irish comedy, “A Couple of Blaguards” by Frank McCourt (Pulitzer Prize winning author of the New York Times Bestseller “Angela’s Ashes”) and Malachy McCourt, author of New York Times Bestseller “A Monk Swimming.”
Called “Wickedly Funny” by Time Out New York, “Memorable” by the New York Times with “An unholy amount of charm!” (Washington Post). GET TICKETS HERE!
According to Malachy McCourt, This show is the result of Frank and me listening to the stories of our elders which in turn tunes the ear, the eye and the tongue to observe and give voice to even the most trivial of events. I think we had more fun than anyone writing and performing Blaguards, which has become an affectionate term for the rowdy, outgoing, and sometimes drinking sort of boys. If you don’t have a good evening, you should have yourself checked to make sure you haven’t died during the day.
Veteran actors Howard Platt (“What About Joan?” “Sandford and Son,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” “The Rock,” “Nixon” … many more) and Jarlath Conroy (“True Grit,” “Law & Order,” “NYPD Blue,” “Putzel,” “The Art of Getting By,” “Across the Universe,” “Kinsey,” “Stay,” “Day of the Dead,” “Heaven’s Gate,” to list but a very few) portray Malachy and Frank McCourt in this extraordinarily moving and “Wickedly Funny” stage production.
Can you imagine a better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?
