Irish Rep Announces Extension for THEATRE @ HOME WINTER FESTIVAL

Irish Repertory Theatre has announced a two-week extension of the Theatre @ Home Winter Festival. The free repertory retrospective of all of the original digital productions created by Irish Repertory Theatre during the COVID-19 shut-down was originally set to conclude on February 21 and will now run through March 7, 2021. For tickets, performance dates and more, visit IrishRep.org.

The Theatre @ Home Winter Festival includes Brian Friel's Molly Sweeney; Yes! Reflections of Molly Bloom, adapted from the novel Ulysses by James Joyce by Aedín Moloney and Colum McCann; Conor McPherson's The Weir; Love, Noël: The Songs and Letters of Noël Coward, written and devised by Barry Day; Belfast Blues, written and performed by Geraldine Hughes; Give Me Your Hand with poems by Paul Durcan performed by Dermot Crowley and Dearbhla Molloy; Eugene O'Neill's A Touch of the Poet; On Beckett / In Screen, an exploration of the works of Samuel Beckett conceived and performed by Bill Irwin; and Meet Me in St. Louis, adapted from the 1989 Broadway production and directed by Charlotte Moore. For more information on each production, visit irishrep.org/show/irish-rep-online/theatre-home-winter-festival.

Each production will be screened once per week during the festival at scheduled times. Reservations for the screenings are free but required in order to access the dedicated screening links and can be made at IrishRep.org. Donations of $25 per show, or $100 for the festival, are suggested for each viewer who can afford to give. A link will be sent to all registrants two hours before each performance begins. The full production schedule can be viewed here. All performances will be open captioned in the 4th and the 6th weeks of the festival (February 15-21 and March 2-7). In the final week of the festival (March 2-7), productions will be screened in order of their original release.

From February 22 through March 7, 2021, Irish Rep will donate 20% of suggested donations received (up to $5,000) to the Cultural Solidarity Fund, which directly supports unemployed artists who are overwhelmingly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
