THE MOST ELEGANT AND RUEFUL MEMORY PLAY SINCE "THE GLASS MENAGERIE"
- TIME MAGAZINE
Irish master storyteller Brian Friel casts a nostalgic and transportive Tony Award-winning tale of five unmarried sisters and a household framed by their strength and persistence, where “anything goes”—until it doesn’t. Step back in time to the summer of 1936, and a small Irish village, where young Michael recalls pennies pinched, hopes hindered, and love thwarted during a life-changing moment in the Mundy family’s world—where a new radio, a homecoming, and the festive season for dance conjures a ravishing spell of ritual, remembrance, and the Chekhovian riddle of whether “memory” is something one has… or something one has lost.
