Out of Joint and the Lyric Hammersmith present

The Big Fellah

New York, 1972. Michael Doyle, a young fireman, joins the IRA. Soon his Bronx apartment is overrun with a fast-quipping Irish killer; a beautiful woman he really mustn’t fall in love with; and charismatic boss David Costello, the “Big Fellah” himself. Over three turbulent decades their lives veer from farce to deadly danger.

The Big Fellah was premiered in 2010 in a production for Out of Joint and the Lyric Hammersmith.
