    See All Times

    We begin with the heartbreaking tragedy of Riders to the Sea by John Millington Synge (directed by Tori Mittelman), in which Maurya has lost her husband and most of her sons to the unrelenting sea and now fears the worst for her other two sons.

     

    Her daughters struggle with how they will share the truth with Maurya without destroying what is left of this strong, powerful woman. Cathleen Ni Houlihan, by Lady Gregory and W.B. Yeats,(directed by Marcia Ferguson) is a gorgeous and mysterious family drama that also serves as a rallying cry for Mother Ireland and her fight for independence.

     

    Finally, we have four contemporary shorts by female playwrights from Fishamble's Tiny Plays for Ireland: Poster Boy by Antonia Hart. Hearts by Lucy Montague-Moffat, and Joan Ryan's Isolation (all directed by Tina Brock).

    This venue is not handicapped accessible, however, we do have folks who can help people up the stairs.
