THIRST is a witty Irish drama wrapped in humanity. Set during Eugene O’Neill’s classic Long Day’s Journey Into Night, failure, denial, and passion roil as two Irish servants and an American chauffeur pass the day in the kitchen of the Tyrone family’s residence in 1912. As tensions rise and the past rears its head, a search for love and belonging becomes the search for “home.”
