ArtsEmerson Presents Irish Theater Festival in Boston Starting on January 27, 2011


ArtsEmerson at Emerson College in Boston is presenting three plays on Irish-American and Irish themes this winter at the newly renovated Paramount Theatre in downtown Boston.

The Color of Rose by Kathrine Bates, is the story of Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, depicted here as "a woman of complexity, strengthened by faith and love of family."   It runs January 27 through February 6 at the Paramount Black Box.

The Cripple of Inishmaan, by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh, is a comic masterpiece with eccentric Irish characters on the island of Inishmaan in 1934.  It is presented by Ireland's famed Druid Theatre and runs February 2 through February 6 at the Paramount Mainstage.

And Terminus, by playwright Mark O'Rowe, is presented by the Abbey Theatre: Ireland's National Theatre. Three people are ripped fromtheir daily lives and thrown into a fantastic world of singing serial killers, avenging angels and love-sick demons.  It runs from February 8 through February 13 at Paramount Mainstage.
