The Chicago Premiere of
The Night Season
by Rebecca Lenkiewicz
Directed by Elizabeth Carlin-Metz
On a rooftop in Sligo, three heartsick sisters yearn for love. Below, their broken Da—the man who would be Lear—chases his visions and his demons, while their dotty Granny curses and dances. When a film star from the States arrives to play the poet Yeats, the world beneath their Irish moon turns upside-down. A funny and ferocious praisesong to the search for love.
