Overview

Comedy / 2m / Bare stage / A Couple of Blaguards, a two-man show by literary greats Frank and Malachy McCourt, is a bubbling stew of their well-known humor with a dash of poignancy to sharpen the flavor. A comedic springboard for Angela’s Ashes, ‘Tis, and Malachy’s A Monk Swimmin’, this brilliantly structured comedy is a proven crowd-pleaser offering solid entertainment. Similar to Frank McCourt’s best-selling novels, the story follows the trials of the young McCourts in poverty-stricken Limerick, Ireland, to their journey to the U.S. and Brooklyn, New York, where the young men learn to incorporate the day-to-day lessons of their hard Irish past. A story of immigration, triumph over hardship, and the love between family, A Couple of Blaguards is a theatrical event that will find a place in the heart of every audience member. / "MEMORABLE! The brothers McCourt bring their two best selling books to the stage... the show has a roguish appeal" - Peter Marks, The New York Times

Frank McCourt (1930-2009) turned his poverty-stricken upbringing in Brooklyn, New York and Limerick, Ireland into his tragic memoir Angela’s Ashes, which was later adapted into a movie. He followed Angela’s Ashes with ’Tis and Teacher Man, both memoirs detailing different time periods in his life. In 2009, the New York City Department of Education founded the Frank L. McCourt High School of Writing, Journalism, and Literature in his honor.
