'No Irish Need Apply' 1870's DVD Program and Talk

We will show my Irish Institute award-winning 1877 production of John Maguire's "Honesty Is the Best Policy" on DVD.

The production won an Off-Broadway Award from The Irish Institute. Maguire's play focuses on the "No Irish Need Apply" period in New York City after the Civil War Draft Riots, about 12 year earlier.

My production has been included in the archives of the Theatre Collection at Lincoln Center, and archived with documents in the Museum of the City of NY. We are looking for showings in 2019-21.

Note: Daniel P. Quinn has received support from Aer Lingus to attend the Dublin Theatre Festival in Ireland. Quinn also met with film director Jim Sheridan while in Dublin as well as other artists in Galway.
