Ballymurphy (1978)
An authentic look at Northern Ireland today by an American actor who lived in Ireland with his grandfather fortwo years. A rare look into the lives and hearts of the Irish Catholic people (the priests, the IRA, children and the young men)‘ who live in the Ballymurphy section of Belfast. The play is a funny, touching and ultimately moving story of those who try to avoid the violence, those who try to escape, and those who are driven to retaliation. BALLYMURPHY showcased at the Manhattan Theatre Club last year and is being revised for the ACT premiere production. Michael will be working directly with director Greg Falls in the revision of this work for the ACT production.
