A world premiere, break-neck comedy by Irish playwright and Abbey Theater favorite Sean Cooney. Set on the south coast of Ireland in the 1980s, Feral MacAdoo, suffering from dissociative fugue after a bombing attack in Dublin, has taken up residence in the Barnacle household and believes he is the painter, Vincent Van Gogh. A local priest, Father Brady, and Fritzi, son-in-law to Mrs. Barnacle, are wanted gunrunners and forgers. Feral (Vincent) paints a series of Van Gogh-esque self-portraits, which Father Brady and Fritzi use in their illegal schemes. Mrs. Barnacle, the matron of the house and no one’s fool, calls the local press and claims she’s found a lost Van Gogh in the attic. Hilarity ensues!
