Lieutenant Brian Murphy, NYPD, died when the Towers fell that morning. Three years
later truth and memory blur as his family continues to struggle with their grief
and rage. Though their hero's shadow still looms large, it cannot obscure certain
inconsistencies that force the family to come to terms with the enigma of Brian.
The Heart Has a Mind of its Own is written by Larry Kirwan
(of the Irish rock band BLACK 47), and directed by Cailin Heffernan.

Thomas Keneally, best known for writing “Schindler’s List” but also the author of historical works about the founding of his native Australia, will turn to that subject in “Transport,” a new musical for which he’s written the book and lyrics.
The show, with music by Larry Kirwan, a playwright and the leader of the rock band Black 47, based in New York, will have its world premiere at the Irish Repertory Theater next year, theater officials announced on Tuesday.
“Transport” is based on the history of Irish women exiled to the South Coast of Australia in the mid-19th century. It centers on the voyage of a prison ship called The Whisper, which brought women and girls to penal colonies. The characters include four prisoners, the ship’s crew and an exiled Irish priest.
