Expertly Acted... affecting... intense. 'Lovers' holds magic

New York Times

Closed 20 Oct 2012

This beautiful and intimate work is filled with Friel?s characteristic poetic lilt and devilish humor.

A poignant tale of two teenagers, Mag and Joe, who live in Ballymore, a poor rural town in Northern Ireland. They spend a summer day in 1966 discussing their graduation from school, gossiping about the townsfolk of Ballymore and planning their upcoming wedding. Friel weaves together evocative language, Irish humor and a sweet sadness. Original and traditional Irish music included.
