2. She speaks in a solid Irish accent even though she, unlike the rest of the cast, isn’t actually Irish.
(She totally pulls it off!)
3. The play is by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright John Patrick Shanley (in the light brown coat) who also wrote Doubt and Moonstruck.
It’s a love story about two introverted middle-aged Irish landowners. And it’s been getting good reviews!
4. And, plot-wise, it’s similar to Moonstruck, so Debra Messing is basically like an Irish Cher.
They’re both women who keep getting nagged by their families about their age and how they haven’t found a spouse, both tough on the outside and romantic on the inside, both strong women who drive the story and are really entertaining to watch.
5. She is also working with an incredibly talented cast.
Her love interest is played by Tony-winner Brían F. O’Byrne (Mildred Pierce, Doubt) and her co-stars include Peter Maloney (Requium For a Dream, Dinner at Eight) and Dearbhla Molloy (Educating Rita, Arcadia).
