Pre-Summer Performance of W. B. Yeats Plays At Coney Island and The Rockaways This Weekend


This weekend's performances of "On Baile's Strand," W.B. Yeats' 1903 play is about the mythological Irish warrior hero Cúchulainn, who unknowingly kills his son in the service of Conchobhar, King of Ulster. The performances are part of CualaNYC, an ongoing two-month festival of Irish culture that commemorates the centenary of the six-day 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin, a pivotal moment in modern Irish history that led to Ireland's independence, and highlights the role of New Yorkers in the rebellion.
