“He is a bit of a controversial person, but only in newspaper columns. The show is going to be funny and focus on life not on politics or other matters. Food, language, driving on the other side of the road, etc. … ” – that we would describe the content of the show, with Peadar de Burca at the Polish House.

He gained fame in Ireland as a writer and theatre director when he began writing comedy, depicting the customs of his country, ridiculing it’s vices. He does it in a rather “American” style.

The play is based on the true stories of human infidelity. It is also translated into Polish. Peadar de Burca is working now also on the book of the same title.
