Daddy Long Legs is a beloved tale about Jerusha Abbott the “Oldest Orphan in the John Grier Home” and her mysterious benefactor who decides to send her to college to be educated as a writer. Required to write him a letter once a month, she is never to know the benefactor’s identity – so she invents one for him: Daddy Long Legs.
Speaking on the announcement, Producer of the Irish production of Daddy Long Legs and Founder of Boulevard Productions, Mark O’Looney said, “The Boulevard Productions team and I are really looking forward to bringing theatre into the living rooms of homes across the country this March with the Irish premier production of Daddy Long Legs. It’s been an extremely difficult year for the arts and to be able to support and showcase Irish talent via this streaming service with Stream.Theatre is a fantastic way for those who enjoy theatre to continue to do so, while Irish theatre venues remain closed for the foreseeable future”.
