Birds

A bold and suspenseful adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s short story, the basis for Alfred Hitchcock’s legendary film of the same title, by critically acclaimed Irish writer Conor McPherson. In an isolated house, strangers Nat and Diane take shelter from relentless masses of mad attacking birds. The temporary sanctuary however provides little comfort and when another refugee arrives with news of the outside world, paranoia takes hold of this makeshift fortress. A not-to-be-missed gripping and emotional look at human relationships in the face of societal collapse.

by Conor McPherson
from the short story by Daphne du Maurier
Starring: Antoinette LaVecchia, Tony Naumovski and Mia Hutchinson-Shaw

When it first premiered “never has [McPherson] been more in control… he keeps us on the edge of our seat” – The Irish Times

“deliciously chilling… spring-loaded with tension… claustrophobic, questioning, frightening; and with a twist” Irish Independent.

The Cure

A welcome reminder that a new generation of Irish playwrights are writing about modern Ireland. As our narrator (Mellamphy) winds his way through the city streets in search of the cure for his hangover he questions what happened to him and who he’s become. Mellamphy inhabits his character so completely that he gives an electrifying performance. He magically transforms himself to present a snapshot of the community against the history and topography of Cork City.

Presented by: New York Irish Center’s Throwback Thursdays
‘Great White American Teeth’ tells the true story of Fiona’s childhood in a tiny Irish community, far away from the excitement of America that she desperately craves – not to mention that loveable hunk Warren Beatty!

Afterplay

Presented by: Irish Repertory Theatre

Afterplay revisits the lives of two characters: Sonya, Uncle Vanya’s dutiful niece and Andrey, the downtrodden intellectual brother of The Three Sisters created by Chekhov 100 years ago.

From two different fictional backgrounds we meet them again after 20 years. They meet by chance in a late night cafe’ in 1920s Moscow. The concert violinist and determined estate owner cannot escape their origins and those circumstances furnished by their creator are still determining their lives. Part of Andrey remains a boy- confused, motherless, reared in a remote provincial town by a domineering father and his 3 restless sisters, while Sonya is wrestling with a difficult estate and is still deeply and hopelessly in love with the local doctor as she was all those years ago.

Twenty years after their original plays and in their middle age they find a comfortable anticipation in their encounter. There is promise in their meeting until their stories unfold and the glow of their fantasies makes way for reality to reclaim the identities of these cherished characters.

Wexfour

Presented by: The Wexford Arts Center in association
with New York Public Library for the Performing Arts

A unique tribute to Wexford, originally commissioned to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Wexford Arts Centre

Award winning and internationally renowned John Banville (The Sea), Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl Series), Billy Roche (Wexford Trilogy) and Colm Tóibín (Brooklyn) share one thing in common: their Wexford origins. While these four plays are each quite distinct in tone, overall they manage to deliver the humor and earthiness that characterize the Wexford psyche. “Erosion,” by Colm Tóibín, is a lyrical study of isolation and loneliness. In Billy Roche’s play “The Dog and Bone”, a woman reflects on a life torn by regret and misguided passions. “My Real Life” by Eoin Colfer presents a man dictating his own eulogy to his iPhone. The final piece, “In the Dock” is a new short play for this production based on the short listed Booker prize “Book of Evidence” by John Banville. We hear an excerpt of the darkly compelling confession of an improbable murderer in his attempt to present evidence, not of his innocence, but of his life, and of the events that lead to the murder he committed because he could.

Ben Barnes describes the WexFour collection as, “short works illuminated by skillful writing’ where ‘all traverse the familiar territory of loneliness and loss; of spirited humor in the face of diversity; of a battered but still resilient hope for, and belief in, a better future.”

Written by John Banville, Eoin Colfer, Billy Roche and Colm Tóibín
