Yahoo Escadrille Theatre Company has announced its upcoming production of This Lime Tree Bower, by Tony AwardŽ nominated playwright Conor McPherson. This Equity-Approved Showcase features Donal Brophy, Nathan McGaughey and Colin Ryan. Yahoo Escadrille Artistic Director Ralph Moniz directs, and Terry Ann Bennett is the Assistant Director.
This Lime Tree Bower tells a frank, funny and moving tale of one eventful week in a seaside Irish town. Unfolding in alternating monologues, the play explores themes of loyalty, responsibility and morality.
This Lime Tree Bower inaugurates the theatre space downstairs at Maggie Mae's, a new home for Irish art, poetry, theatre and dance in the Irish immigrant-dominated neighborhood of Sunnyside, NY. "The atmosphere at Maggie's is ideally suited to the play." says director Moniz. "These three men tell a story with such humor and honesty, they could only be in a theatre or a pub. Here at Maggie's we're in both."
