by John Patrick Shanley, directed by Yvonne Perry
October 16, 17, 18, 2015 (Fri.-Sun.)Painfully shy, Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm, which has always suited him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him, watching the years slip away. With Anthony’s father threatening to disinherit him and a land feud simmering between their families, Rosemary has every reason to fear romantic catastrophe. But then, in this very Irish story with a surprising depth of poetic passion, these two yearning, eccentric souls fight their way towards some kind of happiness.
