A Couple of Blaguards, which comes to the GE Theatre at Proctors Sept. 26-Oct. 5, is the boisterous barroom autobiography of the renowned sibling authors. First produced in New York in 1985, Blaguards was the comedic springboard for Frank's instant classics Angela's Ashes and 'Tis, and Malachy's A Monk Swimming.
