Sean, Women, and Song: A Musical Tribute
The W. Scott McLucas Studio Theatre
Lyrics by Sean O’Casey
Written and Directed by Stephen Kennedy Murphy
Saturday, May 4 at 8pm &
Sunday, May 5 at 3pm
Sean, Women, and Song is a musical celebration of the women who sing the traditional, popular, and classical melodies to which O’Casey wrote lyrics in his plays.
They are powerful women who wage war with prudish clergy, corrupt capitalists, and an array of atrophied patriarchs with their youthful spirit and rebel feminism.
They will give clarion voice to O’Casey’s love of liberty in this concert of songs woven together with a narration written by Stephen Kennedy Murphy, who has arranged music for The O’Casey Reading Series, to which Sean, Women, and Song will offer a lovely, lyrical finale.
Tickets to this special event are available now for $15 ($10 for Irish Rep Members & O’Casey Cycle Subscribers).
