About Wife to James Whelan - Off Broadway

Show Info


Wife to James Whelan is a play by Teresa Deevy and directed by Jonathan Bank. Set in a small town in the middle of Ireland, WIFE TO JAMES WHELAN tells the story of a conflict between ambition and happiness. James is determined to make his mark. Nan thinks he should be content with what he has. When James takes a prized job in Dublin, he leaves Nan behind. “I’ll come back to Kilbeggan to do something,” he vows. James asks Nan to wait for him, but she makes no promises.

We next see James seven years later, sole proprietor of a new enterprise in Kilbeggan, the “Silver Wings” Bus Service and “all the girls are going at him full tilt.” Three women might be ‘Wife to James Whelan’: Nan, his true love, Kate, his true friend, and Nora, who appeals to his ambition—but can anyone or anything bring him happiness?
