O’Flaherty V.C. (GTG Gala)
March 16, 2009
We’re celebrated our fourth year of PROJECT SHAW with our very first benefit gala. The evening featured an all-star cast and a down home Irish dinner just like mother would have made if she’d been down home and Irish: corned-beef & cabbage, lamb stew, pudding and plenty of stout and ale! Stars! Irish musicians! Shamrocks! Raffles and auctions! A glorious evening to be had by all!
In O’FLAHERTY V.C., an Irish soldier has come home to Ireland having been given the royal Victoria Cross for heroism in WWI. His local squire is astonished. The only problem is how to keep his mother from finding out he was fighting to defend England! It’s a rare, wicked and riotous political comedy from Dublin’s proudest son, G.B.S.!
Mr. Michael Cerveris • Mr. Brian Murray • Ms. Jane Powell • Ms. Marian Seldes • Ms. Diane Stilwell Weinberg …. and with surprises by Mr. George S. Irving & Ms. KT Sullivan
