After the Dancing in Jericho


P J Barry

Published by Samuel French Inc

3 Male 3 Female

Kate Driscoll and Jim Conroy are quite a team in this comic drama. Jumping back and forth in time, the play introduces these two as teenage dance partners and as adults who meet again in the 1980s

Jim, divorced father of two children, has been eking out a living as an actor and is about to embark on a new enterprise as a partner in a restaurant. Kate is stuck in a comfortable but dull marriage

When they rekindle their friendship, Kate learns that the romantic ideal of her adolescence is homosexual. Can she accept it?

"Mr. Barry has written an extraordinarily honest play in that he hides nothing: everyone's secrets are exposed. What gives [the play] its steady rhythm are the kindness and acceptance that permeate the characters" ~ N.Y. Times

"Charming and evocative" ~ Newsday
