Brian Friel’s award-winning Irish drama tells the story of five sisters eking out an existence on a farm in a remote region of Donegal, Ireland. In their struggle for survival, they celebrate their lives with dance, humor and illusions of romance, while desperately trying to maintain their way of life in a rapidly changing world.
About the Ticket Supplier: Raven Theatre
Raven Theatre’s mission is to establish itself as an important voice in regional theater, focusing on American classics, as well as new and lesser-known projects that shed light on the “American Experience.” The company’s mission is realized by uniting an ensemble of Chicago-based theater artists from diverse disciplines who work together with the goal of maintaining a high standard of artistic excellence with programming easily accessible to patrons of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds, and thereby enriching our community’s cultural life. Vigorously fresh revivals of masterpieces by great playwrights such as Miller, Williams, Saroyan and Mamet introduce new audiences to established classics, while original and lesser-known works give voice to the next generation of playwrights. Through Raven’s Children’s Theatre Program, the company seeks to present a wide range of theatrical education and entertainment options applicable across a broad academic spectrum.
