Jack Finnegan The American's Dream

Spoken Word


Ketchikan, Alaska and New York City: island towns at opposite ends of the American continent. At first glance they could not seem more dissimilar. But dig deeper, and you'll find that they are fraternal twins: testaments to human ambition and extraordinary destinations for people engaged in the pursuit of their dreams. This lyrical portrait from writer and storyteller Jack Finnegan makes its world premiere, and marks Finnegan’s first return to the Fringe since he debuted his original work City Love Song in 2010, which led to performances in 50 cities across America and around the world.

This show was part of our 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Programme
