The play focuses on a suburban family in the months after two tragic events that changed them forever. The central character, 17 year-old Conrad Jarrett, tries to return to his former life, without the support of his older brother. We follow him as he navigates through the first days back to school, after time in the local psychiatric ward. His parents are having trouble reconnecting and Conrad blames himself.

Written By: Martin McDonagh
Directed By: Robin Bennett
Rights By: Dramatic Play Service Inc., New York

A modern classic of Irish Theatre, the play is set in the mountains of Connemara and tells the story of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early 40’s, and Mag, her manipulative mother. Mag’s interference in Maureen’s first and potentially last romantic relationship sets in motion a chain of events that are tragically funny as they are horrific.

“Timeless Themes, Beautiful Language......Star Crossed Lovers

Blah, Blah! Blah! Heard it all before? Sounds more like a lecture than a night at the theatre? How about a good story about two Young People madly in love? Told to you in a fast, clear (and dare we say?) Fun style.

Taking a page from Shakespeare’s Globe this R & J will take place”Here and Now” for the audience at hand. Just like it was intended to be.”
