Personal Quote:

I always knew I'd have to come home eventually. I'm Irish as hell: Kelly on one side, Shanley on the other. My father had been born on a farm in the Irish Midlands. He and his brothers had been shepherds there, cattle and sheep, back in the early 1920s. I grew up surrounded by brogues and Irish music, but stayed away from the old country till I was over 40. I just couldn't own being Irish. See more »

His play, "Psychopathia Sexualis" at the Mark Taper Forum Theatre in Los Angeles, California was awarded the 1996 Drama Logue Award for Outstanding Production. See more »
