Outcast Production’s upcoming show, “A Couple of Blaguards,” will feature two actors who developed their theatrical roots on Whidbey Island.

Gabe Harshman and Matt Bell are starring in the two-man show set to open at 7:30 p.m. on May 19 at the Outcast Theater at Island County Fairgrounds. The duo are familiar faces to Whidbey theater goers, as they were part of Whidbey Children’s Theater as well as the Slap Happy a cappella quartet.

“A Couple of Blaguards” is a story of immigration, triumph over hardship and the love between family members, according to a press release. It follows the trial of the young McCourts in poverty-stricken Limerick, Ireland in their journey to Brooklyn, New York where “the young men learn to incorporate the day-to-day lessons of their hard Irish past.”

“A Couple of Blaguards” shows at 7:30 p.m. on May 19, 20, 26 and 27 and June 1-3. One show is at 4 p.m. on Sunday, May 28.
