Cinnabar Theater presents "A Couple of Blaguards" WHO: Cinnabar Theater WHAT: "A Couple of Blaguards"By Frank McCourt and Malachy McCourt With Irish tunes and ballads, plus a hearty stew of interesting characters "A Couple of Blaguards" is a rollicking, funny, musical cabaret show that recounts Frank and Malachy McCourt's life in poverty-stricken Limerick, Ireland and their journey to Brooklyn, New York. Professional actors Tim Kniffin and Steven Abbott portray the McCourt brothers and a collection of characters from relatives to rogues, fools and petty tyrants. "A Couple of Blaguards" provides the humorous upside to Frank McCourt’s best selling novel "Angela's Ashes." The two-man play, written before either brother published their first novels, features classic storytelling, live music by the YouKali Celtic Band, poignant vignettes and Irish tradition as it follows the young McCourt brothers from Ireland to America and tells how they learned to apply lessons from their hardscrabble past to their new lives.

You’ll want to relive this classic comedy from Neil Simon. It’s the well-used set-up of opposites that don’t attract, but that are forced to live together in a small New York flat. Oscar and Felix; one is ultra-meticulous, and to the other, the word, “messiness” has no meaning. Together they adjust to living together and host a weekly poker party with an assembly of characters. The patterns that destroyed their marriages begin to reappear with disastrous but very funny results.
An Anthology of 55 Sonoma County WritersWriters from Sonoma County Writing Practice will read from their new anthology Foot Notes. www.handwritingonline.net
It’s a FREE event, but donations are always happily accepted.
