The young McAnigan excels at all he attempts! Mathematics, Medicine, Philosophy, Literature, Knitting, Sheep-Shearing–he’s mastered it all!
In fact, there’s only one subject in which Mr. McAnigan is utterly incompetent: poetry. After his own home town confesses its disapproval of the young McAnigan’s verse, he sets off to London to follow his dreams where he quickly finds himself grappling with rejection, love, sacrifice, & rent.
Determined to succeed, it’s McAnigan versus the world in this hilariously inspiring tale of the amazing, the astounding, the poetically disabled: The Great McAnigan.
The story of Andrew McAnigan’s life and times will be performed:
Wednesday-Sunday, June 1-22
Wed-Sat @ 8pm, Sun @ 2pm
Two Preview Performances: Thursday, May 30 @ 8pm and Friday, May 31 @ 8pm
Rodriguez Room, Goat Farm Arts Center
1200 Foster Street, Atlanta, GA 30318 (MAP/DIRECTIONS)

We’re experimenting with a new way of thinking about ticket sales.
We are pleased to announce that all tickets of Dave Lauby’s The Great McAnigan will be “See the Play Before You Pay.” Why are we doing this? Simple:
“At its origins, theatre was an act of healing the city.” -Peter Brook
We want to stop thinking about tickets as a purchase and start seeing theatre as an offering to the city we live in, work in, and love. And, reminiscent of those street artists of old who lived and died based on the money in the hat, we’ll “pass the hat” in our own 21st-century way at the end of each performance. Patrons choosing this option will also receive some goodies as a token of our appreciation, including some additional poetry not found in the play, but written by none other than McAnigan himself.
Reserve your Free Priority Seating for any performance HERE. This way, if we have a huge crowd and your name is on the list, you’re guaranteed a spot for the show.
Prefer things a bit old fashioned? Don’t worry: we’re still offering pre-sale tickets online HERE and at our normal price of $20/general admission and $15/anyone under the age of 25.
Seating is limited and reservations are recommended, but not required. Walk-ups are always welcome. All online sales and reservations end approximately 2 hours before showtime.
As our mission statement implies, all artists working and creating for The Great McAnigan work and live in the metro-Atlanta area. That includes writers, actors, designers, and everyone in between. Talk about homegrown!
