About the Play

Hollywood comes to rural Ireland in this wickedly funny, multi-award-winner which ran for four years in London’s West End. Down-on-their-luck Irishmen Charlie and Jake get hired as extras on a big American movie being filmed in their village. Drama ensues—some hilarious and some heartbreaking—as they begin to discover that their romanticized Hollywood dream isn’t quite what it seems.

Two actors play multiple characters in this tragicomedy that pits harsh reality against Hollywood endings.

Admission is $15($13 OI members). Purchase tickets online or call 304-242-7700.
