Crowded Kitchen Players in the Irish Comedy “Brendan”


Written by Ronan Noone

Directed by Ara Barlieb

“Brendan” is a funny, evocative, play about love, loss, and learning to leave the past behind.” (Adult langage.)


  • Brendan left the old country five years back, and he’s comfortable now calling America home.
  • He misses his family; at the same time, he’s happy enough to have an ocean between him and his overbearing mother.
  • He’s worked hard to fit into his adopted country and has found life in Boston not terribly different than in Ireland. Fond of Mozart and beer, Brendan balances his life between his job, his apartment, and his cherished “Two-Pint Wednesdays” at the neighborhood pub.
  • But, his world abruptly belly-flops when tragic news arrives from home. Suddenly, the ghost of his mother begins following him everywhere. She peers over his shoulder, enters his conversations, weighs in heavily about his shameful lifestyle, and frets endlessly over him learning to drive on the “wrong” side of the road, all of which make Brendan realize he hasn’t yet broken free of the old Irish sod.
