With a touch of blarney and a wealth of heart, the Oscar, Pulitzer, and Tony Award-winning author of Moonstruck and Doubt conjures up a wry and wondrous romantic comedy with a dark Irish twist. Family feuds and rustic fences have kept two eccentric, lovelorn neighbors apart since childhood, but in this passionate, compassionate Broadway hit it’s never too late to take a chance on love.
