I was worried about getting crappy seat but they were great seats-third row, center. The way seating is set up, there aren't really any bad seats in the theater.

“As close to perfection as contemporary playwriting gets.” —New York Times


Gorgeous and haunting, this drama uses richly drawn characters and powerful storytelling to weave a tale of love, loss and faith. A recently bereaved widower seeks help from a therapist when he begins seeing his wife’s ghost, but the therapist, a former priest, struggles with problems of his own.

By Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Lime Tree Bower, Shining City)
