On Blueberry Hill
  • West End

Following critically-acclaimed and sell-out runs in New York and Dublin, Olivier-Award winning Fishamble and Sebastian Barry's universally celebrated play, On Blueberry Hill, comes to London's West End for 8 weeks only.

Sebastian Barry is one of Ireland's greatest living writers and the current Laureate of Irish Fiction. His novels and plays have won, and been nominated for, the MAN Booker Prize and the Irish Book Awards among many others. His novels include the international best sellers Days Without End and A Long Long Way.

In Barry's beautiful style, On Blueberry Hill features best of friends and worst of enemies Christy (Niall Buggy) and PJ (David Ganly), who are destined to share their lives for twenty years. As the two men reflect on the hope and torment of life outside - they slowly uncover the events that have led them to their world with explosive, bittersweet consequences.

Directed by Fishamble's Jim Culleton, this new play is bursting with humanity as it explores forgiveness, survival, and ultimately, love.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society.
