The King of East Jabip

Every house tells a story. Every room, a chapter. Cracks in the plaster, peeling wallpaper, a foundation that's settled, uneven. Meet Jack and Nora Doyle, an Irish American couple in their twilight trying to discover together how to deal with life's twists and turns. Set in Philadelphia, local playwright Kelly McCarthy's The King of East Jabip touches on the trials and tribulations of growing in age, losing state of mind, and dealing with loss. Witty, humorous, and heartwarming, this new play will leave you grateful for all of life's immeasurable beauty. This all-star cast collectively brings 16 Barrymore nominations, 6 Barrymore wins, and 1 Lifetime Achievement Award winner to The Eagle Theatre's stage.
