PJ and Christy: sworn enemies destined to share one small room for twenty years. As the two men recall the joys and torments of life outside – the childhood excursions, a deadly brawl, past loves and summer dresses – slowly they uncover the tragic events that have lead them to their cell in Montjoy.

A play that explores our capacity to commit the deadliest of crimes but also our capacity for survival, reconciliation and love, On Blueberry Hill premiered in a Fishamble production at the Pavilion Theatre as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival and at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris in October 2017.
