But then . . . what about the Irish? It seems like in plays with Irish characters and even with Irish-American characters, we often get casts in which most actors are of Irish descent, but this doesn't happen so much with Italians or the Swedish or Russians or Germans or Jews. And as a Jew, I think of Jewishness as an ethnicity.

That definitely crossed my mind when I saw the production of THE FERRYMAN. The performance of ethnicities on stage is complicated and informed by so many things.
