The Communication Cord
Brian Friel takes us to the remote Irish town of Ballybeg for this often-hilarious story of a young man trying to impress his girlfriend’s father. The father is a pompous senator with a romantic attachment to the “auld" Ireland; he and a variety of other eccentric characters threaten the young man’s well-planned weekend.
The Communication Cord was first produced by the Field Day Theatre Company in Derry, Ireland, in September of 1982, two years after its companion piece, Translations. ACT is pleased to present its American premiere.
