Anton Dudley's SONG OF THE WIND Continues Irish Rep's Reading Series Today

Irish Repertory Theatre continues its 11th season of the New Works Reading Series with a staged reading of Anton Dudley's play SONG OF THE WIND.

Directed by Irish Rep Literary Manager Kara Manning, the reading will take place today, January 27, 2017 at 3:00pm at Irish Rep Theatre (132 West 22nd Street) on the Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage. Tickets to the reading are free and open to the public. Seating is limited. RSVP through Irish Rep's box office by calling 212-727-2737.

The cast for SONG OF THE WIND will include Aedin Moloney* (The Dead, 1904; Women Without Men), Gilles Geary ("Spirit Warriors," "Bad Education"), and Hunter Canning* (War Horse, The Diorama).

On a lonely beach in the North Channel Islands, the boundaries of dream-life and waking-life blur, as two men travel through time to find their future in the past. Song of the Wind is a love song to the vanishing rural lives of two soul mates who believed they had found Tír na nóg, the mythical Land of Youth.

The 2016-17 New Works Reading Series is underwritten in part by members of Irish Rep's Patron's Circle.

Tickets to the reading are free and open to the public. Seating is limited. RSVP through Irish Rep's box office by calling 212-727-2737. For more information about Irish Repertory Theatre, visit www.irishrep.org.
