O’Byrne in Shanley’s Doubt

By Irish America Staff
December / January 2005

Irish-born Tony Award winner Brian O’Byrne will join forces with Irish American Oscar winner John Patrick Shanley in a new drama called Doubt, which will open at the Manhattan Theater Club on November 22.

O’Byrne won the 2004 Tony for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a play for his portrayal of a child-killer in the play Frozen. If you didn’t get to see Frozen, now is your chance to see Byrne in an equally provocative role. In Doubt, he plays a priest, Fr. Flynn, who begins to take too much interest in the life of a young male student.

O’Byrne, who has toiled in all sorts of roles on the New York stage and received two previous Tony nominations, is from Mullagh, Co. Cavan. ♦
