Irish Repertory Theatre Presents the World Premiere of REBEL IN THE SOUL
Irish Repertory Theatre will present the world premiere of Larry Kirwan's REBEL IN THE SOUL.
April 12 - May 21, 2017
Dr. Noel Browne was elected to the Irish Parliament in the general election of 1948. Handsome, intense, arrogant, and unpredictable, he was only 33 years of age, with few political skills but a burning ambition to rid Ireland of the scourge of tuberculosis which had wiped out most of his family. Upon the introduction of his "Mother & Child Scheme"-a plan to provide free postnatal care to women and children under the age of 16-he quickly found himself at odds with the "Man of Destiny," party leader and ex-Irish Republican Army chief, Sean McBride, and the ruthless, obsessive tactician, Archbishop of Dublin, Dr. John Charles McQuaid.
Larry Kirwan's Rebel in the Soul closely examines the maneuvering of these three charismatic people and the ensuing crisis that brought down the government and changed Irish life forever.

Eugene O'Neill's groundbreaking play The Emperor Jones is the story of Brutus Jones, a despot who ascends the throne using lies, intimidation and the politics of fear. Following a prison break in the United States, Jones sets himself up as monarch of a Caribbean island. When the Natives rebel after years of exploitation, Jones's mesmerizing journey into darkness becomes a terrifying psychological portrayal of power, fear, and madness. With his demons in heavy pursuit, the Emperor is forced to confront not just the mortal sins of his past but also the depravities against his ancestors - all in search of forgiveness and salvation.Performance Schedule: Wednesday: 3pm & 8pm, Thursday: 7pm, Friday: 8pm, Saturday: 3pm & 8pm, Sunday: 3pm Tickets: $24-70
