A Statue for Bill Clinton

Dublin-based theatre production company, Verdant Productions presents “A Statue for Bill Clinton”, a true Irish comedy, about the visit of President Bill Clinton to Ireland in 1998.

Written by Tom McEnery, author, businessman and former Mayor of San Jose, California, and directed by Paul Meade, the play is set in Ballybunion, Co. Kerry.  Based on the true story of a local group intent on inviting the then President of the United States of America, Bill Clinton to the town of Ballybunion. Irish comedy by Tom McEnery, about the visit of Bill Clinton to Ireland

A core group of residents hatch a cunning plan to unveil the world’s first statue to the leader of the free world during his visit to “The Kingdom” of Kerry.  However, well publicised events in the Oval Office with a certain intern, have put his visit in jeopardy.  As if this was not enough, something unexpected has happened to the statue.  How will this affect events in Ballybunion as it awaits immortality on the world stage?  As Bill Clinton himself said: “You just have to keep swinging and know it will all even out!”

In advance of his arrival in Dublin, Tom McEnery said, “I am thrilled that ‘A Statue for Bill Clinton” debuts in Dublin, Ireland this week.  This particularly tells a tale about how a town on the edge of the Atlantic fights for its self-respect and very survival. As in all such stories, there is real humour to many of the characters and incidents.  Into this mix, President Bill Clinton arrives with the drama swirling around the peace process and his possible impeachment.  Almost each and every incident is just as it actually happened on that day.”
