Additional Info

This comedy had a lengthy run Off Broadway. Liam has just arrived in America from Ireland and, like many immigrants before him, has come to the Bronx neighborhood bar where Seamus can usually be found ready to aid newcomers. Unfortunately Seamus has had to split to stay a jump ahead of immigration agents, but other patrons are willing to help Liam find lodging; he already has a construction job lined up. Liam moves in with the bar's cook, a wry gardener who works in Westchester, and an aspiring poet. Living upstairs are two Irish girls, one who embraces the freedom she has found in America and the other a prudish husband hunter. This beguiling group of young immigrants show Liam the way and, as the play closes, he is an assimilated American willing and able to help newcomers who come into the bar asking for Seamus.
