Pints, Pounds, and Pilgrims Synopsis

-A humble Irish arts festival on a tiny island off the coast of Connemara finds itself in the cross-hairs of competing theater companies and their feuding stage directors from London, England and Hoboken, New Jersey.

-When the Inishbofin Arts Festival finds that the play it has commissioned, "A Bad Year for Potatoes", is a dismally skewed portrayal of Irish family life, and when the director of that play threatens to sue if any attempt is made to brighten the show's bleak outlook, the Festival director reaches out to an American dinner theater that specializes in bawdy bedroom farce, such as the perhaps excessively racy "Don't Dress for Dinner".ppp 2017 compressed

-And when the two companies find themselves scheduled to perform their respective plays at the Festival at the same place and hour, dramaturgical warfare breaks out on the cramped stage of the Bayside Public House, Island of Inishbofin, County Galway.
