daughters of ire
may 12th, 2016
Random Acts is thrilled to present The Other Theatre Company's production of Daughters of Ire, written and performed by Savanna Rae and directed by Carin Silkaitis. Ferocious, fragile, and funny women from Irish legend claw their way into 2016 in this breathless new one-woman play, nominated for Best New Work last year by BroadwayWorld.com. "Under the skillful direction of Carin Silkaitis, the transition from character to character is seamless." -The Fourth Walsh
