Pride of Pranell Street Show Image
‘See, love between a man and a woman, it’s – private. It happens where you never do see it. In rooms.’
The Pride of Parnell Street is a moving account of a marriage and a time that have both past. Through interconnecting monologues an estranged couple, Janet and Joe, chart the intimacies of their love and the rupturing of their relationship, as well as their enduring love affair with Dublin City itself.
In this world premiere production, Sebastian Barry’s new play explores, with vivid tenderness, the devastating effects of public and private acts of violence. This is an intimate, heroic tale of ordinary and extraordinary life on the streets of Dublin produced by highly acclaimed new writing company, Fishamble. 
"Sebastian Barry is a writer who has huge significance in the Irish canon, and whose work is also a milestone for the return to lyricism in Irish prose and drama." Sunday Independent
What Do We Think?
A new Sebastian Barry play in our 50th anniversary year is an acknowledgment of the Festival’s role as an on-going platform for the very best of new Irish writing.
