Hurl by Charlie O’Neill
Directed by: Tracy Cameron Francis
Venue: New Expressive Works, 810 SE Belmont St. Portland
Dates: Oct 5 – 28, 2018
Thu – Sat 7:30pm, Sun 2pm

Tradition, desire and bodies collide when an Irish team made up of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers—originally from Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Cuba, Bosnia, Vietnam, Argentina and inner-city Dublin—is formed and compete in the very traditional and ancient Irish sport of hurling. Led by an alcoholic priest and a washed-up trainer, the team battles discrimination and bureaucratic barriers to make its way to the All-Ireland finals. With humor, wit and energy, Hurl explores what it means to be Irish in the 21st Century.
