NO ROMANCE by Nancy Harris
Ac triptych of one-acts exploring the themes of love and bonds of affection, playwright Harris takes us on a journey across the Emerald Isle to examine the far-reaching ripples of human interactions and how interwoven are all of our threads. Hailed as "bracingly witty, alert and incisive"
CORKTOWN '57 by John Fazakerley
Family dynamics and political ire mix it up in CORKTOWN 57, playwright John Fazakerley's powerful family drama about the IRA operating in Philadelphia's Irish quarter and the split when a British officer shows up in America, using his unwitting brother to open secret negotiations with a moderate IRA commander --- who happens to be his cousin. Events spiral out of control resulting in a tragedy on a Shakespearean scale.
TINY LITTLE FISTS by Karen Tarjan
The St. Valentine's Day Massacre: An iconic scene in Chicago's Irish history. But what happened next door to that infamous garage on February 14, 1929? A high-octane, rat-a-tat tale of one connected guy who wants to get the hell away from the gang. He got himself in... Can he get himself out?
