Our Father

Seanachai Theatre Company at The Atlantic

March-May, 2009

Seanachaí took its tradition of Irish storytelling back to its roots – with this raucous tale of loss and reconciliation, performed in the back of a pub.  Booze, insults, poetry and comedy flew in equal measure as the actors mixed it up amidst the audience.

“The family may disagree on whether their “Da” was a good man or a bad, but we’re right there with them at the wake, held in the back room of a fully-functioning Lincoln Square pub. Slainte!”     Windy City Times – Critics’ Picks

“Seanachaí has gone the extra yard to secure Monday nights at the Atlantic Bar & Grill for a show that places you smack in the middle of the comic proceedings”    Chicago Tribune

“Seanachaí Theatre Company has hitched itself to a crowd-pleasing, pub-friendly show, and the cast has a ball.”   Chicago Reader
