For the final play of the season, Theater for Community will transport the audience to Ireland with "The Shadow of a Gunman" by Sean O'Casey. Set in 1920, the action takes place in a Dublin tenement where romantic, would-be poet Donal Davoren is mistaken for an IRA gunman on the run and experiences firsthand the terror and the terrible cost of Ireland's battle for independence. Directed by Crystal Brian, professor of theater, "The Shadow of a Gunman" will be performed April 14-16 at 7:30 p.m. and April 17 at 2 p.m. in the Clarice L. Buckman Theater on the Mount Carmel Campus.
The performance is also part of the celebration "Remembering the Easter Rising: Ireland 1916 at Quinnipiac University."
