About the Play

It’s 1928 in the Horseshoe slum of Jersey City, NJ and “No Irish Need Apply”.  Hungry to escape his low status, Teddy Devlin aligns himself with the notorious boss mayor, Frank “I’m the law” Hague.  While proud to be a part of the machine that empowers the Irish, Teddy struggles to accept the damage it does to all the other immigrants. 

It's the American way, but is it the right way?
