We are providing pre-play and intermission music for the first Staged Reading of the New Year!
Shapeshifters Theatre continues its series of staged readings this winter in the Fifth Province Pub. Readings are held the first Monday of each month. Kicking off the winter series on Monday, January 4 is "The Shadow of a Gunman", the first in Irish playwright Sean O'Casey's "Dublin Trilogy".
"Gunman" centers on the mistaken identity of a building tenant who is thought to be an IRA assassin. The play is followed by "Juno and the Paycock" on Monday, February 1 and "The Plough and the Stars" on Monday, March 7.
The Fifth Province opens at 6 pm and readings begin at 7 pm. The audience is invited to stay after the reading for a talk back with director Elizabeth Ellis and the cast. Local musicians will provide live music before and after the performance.
Tickets for the reading are $10 and can be purchased at the door, by visiting www.irish-american.org
