Written with scurrilous bravura, Richard Bean's great sweep of a comedy follows a pair of star-crossed lovers amid cutters' mobs, Papists, Jewish anarchists and radical Islamists across four tempestuous centuries. "Irish and Jewish, that's the worst mix. You end up with a family of drunk burglars run by a clever accountant."
