This rollicking Irish comedy follows the trials of the young Frank & Malachy McCourt in poverty-stricken Limerick, Ireland, to their journey to the U.S. and Brooklyn, New York, where the young men learn to incorporate the day-to-day lessons of their hard Irish past. A story of immigration, triumph over hardship, and the love between family, A Couple of Blaguards is a theatrical event that will find a place in the heart of every audience member. Very helpful if you want to lose weight - you will laugh your arse off!

By Frank McCourt & Malachy McCourt

In the event of rain, we will make the call to cancel the show NO EARLIER than 2 hours before the start of the performance (we all know how fickle Pittsburgh weather can be!). Subscribers and patrons that already have purchased tickets will receive a call or email within those 2 hours informing them of the cancellation. Patrons may choose another performance to attend, receive a refund on their tickets, or donate their tickets back to the theater. If enough performances need to be cancelled, we will add additional rain-date performances the weekend after the show was originally supposed to close! Check back in for updates on rain-date performances posted here on the website.

Once there was a girl no taller than a thumb, so she was called Thumbelina. Based on the classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen, this wonderfully imaginative production takes us into Thumbelina’s world, fraught with dangers for one so small. A water rat named Walter and an unpleasant family of toads are both determined to capture her. Plus, a grumpy old mole thinks she’ll make a fine companion in his gloomy house. If only Thumbelina can find Prince, the boy who promised to take her to the Land of the Little People, where she’ll be safe.

South Park Theatre acknowledges that our work is produced on settled indigenous land and recognizes that these are the lands of the Adena, Monongahela, Osage, Mingo, the Lenni Lenape, Shawnee, and Hodinöhšönih (hoe-den-ah-show-nee) — the six Nations of the Cayuga, Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Seneca, and Tuscarora. We are gathered on Jö:deogë’ (joan-day-o-gan’t), a Senaca word for Pittsburgh translated as “between two rivers”. South Park Theatre acknowledges that this land, water, and its resources are stolen from indigenous people, and this theft has aided in the forced removal and genocide of Native Americans. We recognize that Native Americans were here before us, continue to live beside us, and will continue to live on these lands. Land acknowledgements serve as a starting point for decolonial practice and are not enough on their own. We invite you to also acknowledge the stolen indigenous lands present in your life and work with us to promote indigenous visibility.
