Philadelphia, Here I Come! Summary

E xile and emigration are constant themes of Irish drama. But Brian Friel's play , beautifully directed by Lyndsey Turner, lends fresh life to a stock situation in two ways: by giving voice to the hero's alter ego, and by focusing on the power of unarticulated feeling. This, as Friel himself once said, is as much a play about love as emigration. Friel's big trick is to show the two sides of year-old Gar O'Donnell as he prepares to leave stagnant Ballybeg and his father's dry-goods store for the joys of the US. The public Gar initially seems brooding and cautious, while the private Gar is wild and fantastical. But Friel's artistry turns what might be a mechanical device into something more complex by constantly shuffling the two roles.
