“FLUID, FUNNY, AND HEARTFELT, Brendan is Ronan Noone’s most expertly crafted play yet.” - The Boston Globe
“A lively and loving world premiere. VERY FUNNY!” - Boston Phoenix

His recent play The Atheist was part of the Huntington's 2006 Breaking Ground Festival, and premiered in both New York and London.
