COOLE LADY

Genre: Other
Written and directed by Sam McCready,

A one-woman play performed by the celebrated Joan McCready of the Belfast Lyric Theatre. COOLE LADY is an entrancingly human portrait of larger-than-life Lady Gregory, the Irish playwright, folklorist, and political firebrand whose patronage of Yeats and founding of the Abbey Theatre launched a literary renaissance in Ireland. Lady Gregory's public confrontations, numerous setbacks, and triumphant role in renewing a vanishing culture embody the sacrifice and indefatigable will that underlie all great art. Her story is that of Ireland itself in its struggle to preserve a national identity.www.handcartensemble.org
