By Brian Friel
Directed by Jodi Kanter

February 15, 16, 17 at 7:30 pm
February 18 at 2:00 pm 

The first spring production of the Program of Theatre & Dance. An English Ordinance Survey of a rural Irish town becomes the occasion for an exploration of how ancient cultures are preserved or destroyed--and at what cost.  Set at a hedge school in 1833, Translations is a contemporary play about the relationship between how we speak, who we are, and whom we love.

Brian Friel has been likened to an "Irish Chekhov" and his works include Philadelphia, Here I Come! and Faith Healer. Friel had 24 plays published in a career of more than a half-century and in 1980 co-founded Field Day Theatre Company and his play Translations was the company's first production. His Dancing at Lughnasa received a Tony Awards including Best Play, the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.
