O’Donnell's Pub at Zanesville Community Theatre is a world premiere, written by Zanesville native Christopher Brooks. The comedy opens on St. Patrick’s Day in a Seattle pub with our main character Molly Fischer at a crossroads. Her career and her relationship are both going nowhere and she has been estranged from her only living relative –her mother- for as long as she can remember. A surprise inheritance of a pub in rural Ireland comes from an uncle she never knew she had. Her decision to pick up her disastrous life and move to Ireland does not go over well with the boyfriend. She arrives to find a charming pub full of oddball characters and soon learns the real hidden charm of the pub, the massive back tax bill that is due in thirty days. Come see how Molly and her cast of Irish misfits navigate this challenge and what might be at the end of Molly’s rainbow.
