Grab a seat on love's merry-go-round as Moliere's rarely performed gem Lovers' Quarrels makes its way to the Boston Center for the Arts. Translated into English verse by Pulitzer Prize-winner Richard Wilbur, this play tells of a young woman named Ascagne, who, for the sake of a family inheritance, has been forced to spend her life disguised as a man. But after she falls in love with the rejected suitor in pursuit of her sister, Ascagne will begin an adventurous masquerade filled with witty comic mix-ups and jealous rivalries. 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.
