March 18, 19, 24, 25, 26 @ 7:30-10p.m. and March 20 and 27 @ 2:00-5:30p.m
The O’Donnell family, fallen Irish aristocracy, have gathered at their crumbling family estate for a wedding. As the patriarch lies dying in his upstairs bedroom, the grown-up children sort out the truth about the family’s past, present and future. In this elegiac play, Friel (Faith Healer, Molly Sweeney) explores dysfunctional family dynamics and decaying culture with the dark humor and lyricism Prospect audiences have come to love.
