Da, the 1978 Tony Award Winner for Best Play, is the story of Charlie, a writer who's been
living in London for many years, who returns to his boyhood home in Dalkey, a suburb of
Dublin, Ireland, after the death of his adoptive father.
He finds that the house is filled with ghosts, of his parents and of his younger self. Charlie
talks and interacts with all the ghosts, relives important moments from his youth, and comes
to grips with his complicated feelings for his adoptive parents. Through Charlie's
conversations and interactions with the ghosts in his home, we see both why he loved his
parents and why he was so eager to leave them far behind.
Da is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals, New York (Please verify)
