Tomorrow morning, Gar O’Donnell is leaving Ballybeg and the Ireland of his childhood. Leaving his father and the lads. Leaving Kate. There’s a dream across the ocean, of Cadillacs, Coke floats and girls: a dream of America.
 
On his last night in town a series of visitations, real and imagined, force Gar to confront the choices he's made and the promise of the future.
 
The play that established Brian Friel as one of the greatest theatrical voices of the English language, Philadelphia, Here I Come! paints a touching portrait of a young man on the verge of a new beginning, searching for the strength to say goodbye.
