Theatre Recommendation

If you’re wondering what a petty thief, an Irish nun, and a roll of film have to do with oil and corruption in Nigeria and Western Europe, you’ll have to see “Little Thing, Big Thing”   the fabulous production by Fishamble, which is part of the 1st Irish festival   There are more characters than just Larry and Sister Martha in this play – Donal O’Kelly and Sorcha Fox not only play them all – they also give us scene descriptions and sound effects, as the stage consists mostly of 2 chairs and fencing.  But you’ll get drawn into this well acted tale of murder, betrayal and attempted redemption as our protagonists drive across Ireland in this dark comic thriller, whose ending is rather a surprise.  I recommend it.

At 59 East 59th Street until September 27th.
