BELFAST BLUES
9/20/14 thru 10/5/14

Saturday & Sunday @ 5pm
90 mins, no intermission

The award-winning Belfast Blues, written and performed by Geraldine Hughes (Jerusalem, Translations, Cyrano) and directed by Emmy-winner Carol Kane (Wicked), returns to the Barrow Street Theatre for a limited engagement this Fall!

"Outstanding" - LA Times
“Takes your breath away" - Chicago Tribune

Geraldine Hughes's one-woman Belfast Blues is a tapestry of stories told from Hughes’ perspective as a little girl coming of age in the war-torn Belfast of the 1980s. Passionate, riveting, often humorous, these stories bear insightful witness to the many faces of “trying to live a normal life” amidst the violence born of the longstanding grudge between Catholics and Protestants.

RIDING THE MIDNIGHT EXPRESS WITH BILLY HAYES
9/24/14 – 12/28/14

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday @ 7:30pm
Sunday @ 2pm

70 mins, no intermission. Followed by Q&A with Billy Hayes.

An epic journey of self-discovery. Written and performed by the man who lived it.

Hayes was arrested at the Istanbul airport in 1970 with two kilos of hashish taped to his body. The Turkish High Court sentenced him to life in prison. Five years later, Billy escaped from Imrali Island prison in the dead of night - rowing 17 miles across the open sea in a raging storm.

"Intrinsic power...engrossing" - The New York Times
"Hayes is a master storyteller" - Times Square Chronicles

THE COMPLETE AND CONDENSED STAGE DIRECTIONS OF EUGENE O’NEILL VOL 1 & 2
10/28/14 – 11/24/14

Sunday & Monday @ 7:30pm
VOLUME 1 (Mon): 72 minutes, no intermission
VOLUME 2 (Sun): 61 minutes, no intermission

The Eugene O'Neill stage direction adventure that The New York Times called "Great fun" and "an impish illustration of how lively entertainment can be created from theatrical spare parts" continues with both volumes running in rep for the first time ever at BST. By removing the dialogue and stripping the plays down to pure action, O'Neill's eloquent yet obsessive and often controlling stage directions become a rip-roaring physical comedy

"Sharp, witty and thoroughly fantastic. . . speaks to the true magic of the theatre." - The Huffington Post, Best Theater of 2011
