BALLYKISSANGEL demonstrates the sometimes poignant but more often hilarious aspects of life in an Irish village. Listeners experience firsthand a local play, a beauty contest, a resident rock star, an abandoned baby, and countless priest jokes. (Two of the principal characters are priests.) Narrator Gerry O'Brien gives each character's presentation his all, with the stand-out performance given to the wily, manipulative rich guy who, to the residents’ (and listeners’) joy, gets his comeuppance. A romp in the countryside for those who love all things Irish. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
