This long-running romantic family comedy is the template for many subsequent successes. Jewish Abe "Abie" Levy, brings home as his bride Rosemary Murphy, whom he met in France during the war. To appease his father, Abie introduces Rosemary as "Rosie Murphyski". Papa Levy is fooled until Rosie's father, Patrick Murphy, arrives. A comic war erupts. Abie and Rose, having been married by a Methodist minister, are married again by a rabbi to please Papa, and a third time by a Catholic priest to satisfy the Irish contingent. The subsequent birth of twins- a girl named Rebecca and a boy named Patrick- brings the warring factions to a peaceable cease fire.
First produced at the Fulton Theatre in New York City

Abie's Irish Rose seems to be a play that is much better on stage than in print.  It's hard to read the dialect, and the characters require actors and a set to flesh them out.  Unlike other plays I've read, the magic just doesn't come through in the script.
