Lay Me Down Softly
sweeps its audience into the Irish countryside circa the early-1960s, as Delaney's Traveling Roadshow tours through small towns, bringing with it the thrill of bumper cars, the oddity of bearded ladies, the pleasure of rifle ranges and, most importantly, the main attraction: a boxing ring. It's inside of this very ring -- into which the Roadshow invites all comers to put up their dukes for a chance at winning a prize -- that most of this powerful play's drama ensues. As Theo, the iron-fisted Delaney patriarch in constant pursuance of power, battles with his family and fighters to keep everyone in line, the unexpected arrival of his estranged daughter throws the Roadshow's entire world against the ropes. The Seanachai Theatre Company, renowned for a tradition of Irish storytelling, proudly brings the U.S. premiere of Billy Roche's Lay Me Down Softly
to the stage of The Den Theatre.
