Maeve’s House 

Written by and starring



Gerard Stembridge




Years have gone by since Brian Friel’s Philadelphia  Here I Come came to America. Eamon Morrissey, in it then, evolved to the revered star of 100 plays at the famed Abbey Theatre in Dublin; tv series star in Ireland and London etc. and current author and star of Maeve’s House at the Irish Arts Center that is playing to packed houses.  Meeting Eamon now, opens my book to another page.

Eamon’s purpose: Have  New Yorkers discover the life of iconic New Yorker writer Maeve Brennan. She dictates the flow of the play, is  never seen but his recall highlights the unexpected, mysterious, similarities first found in her New Yorker article

Reading Brennan’s tales  unravels his fog of time. He’s  amazed.  His mirror’s reflection fits into hers like a pieces in a puzzle. “ There are things we know without knowing that we know them”  John Bradshaw (counselor, motivational speaker) wrote. Eamon  wrote what he feels strongly about. How refreshing in this voyeuristic time of trivial, copy-cat scribes.

“”Maeve Brennan’s brilliant. She’s a bit overlooked” he said to Rebecca Mead from 
The New Yorker
 hosting the Q and A. 

“Maeve writes silence;  she speaks resignation. She writes sad people who have lost hope; characters restricted in their way of thinking. She’s totally specific at the beginning of a story. It’s exact. It’s precise.

Memory is very doubting. Each time we tell a story we change and it can change.


Wisdom and recall Eamon elevates to artistry.  The audience nods in agreement or elbows a person near by Me too: Yes, we remember the stories we tell about our lives; we invent our lives in the remembering


What a  splendid rare journey with Eamon. It’s not memory retention, but special story telling. It’s his act of faith with a great payoff.


I leave inspired. Eamon was open when he first read Brennan’s article. Look what it led too

O.k. Remember: be more open. Remember Henry Miller’s words: The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware.


Eamon Morrissey pushed the first domino .An Irish- people- pot pouri who crossed my horizon  return for a psychic visit.:  Patrick Bedford. Donal Donnelly, Milo O’shea Geraldine  Fitzgerald, Aideen o Kelly, Helena Carroll, Siobhan Mckenna. Mary Tierney, Eileen O’ Casey, Brian Friel, Lord Kilannin, Hilton Edwards, Vincent Dowling, Michael Mac Liammore, Edward Mulhare. The O’Toole, Eugene Foley, Seamus Kelly, Malachy Mc Cort etc.


                Thank you takes on entirely new meaning.



When acting in a play at Dublin’s Gate Theatre, the actors hotel closed early locking me out. Eamon Morrissey walked me around the River Liffey, talking to tinkers, truck drivers and street characters until my hotel opened.

His wonderful wife Ann remembers my visiting her hospital room telling her a Sanskrit Buddhist chant.

 .                                       I shall always be throwing confetti in your direction.
