In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever. The 2008 film adaptation, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman, earned Oscar nominations for all four actors. This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

Tir Na Theatre Company Presents Trad
Written by Mark Doherty
Directed by Carmel O’Reilly
Featuring Nancy Carroll, Colin Hamell and Billy Meleady
A fable about the value of tradition, Trad is the hilarious yet touching tale of 100-year-old Thomas and his improbably ancient father, Da. When Thomas reveals that he once fathered a son in a long-ago fling, the pair set off across the Irish countryside with little more than a hobble and a limp to help them on their search for the last remaining link in the family line. A smash hit in Ireland’s Galway Arts Festival.
