Play on Thursday...
written by Irish playwright Brian Friel and directed by Amy Seham (theatre),

and usually hidden in the woods or on a farm. "Translations" confronts
the destruction of Irish language and culture that occurred at the time.
From banning Irish schools to Anglicizing the names of towns, cities, and
other landmarks and the forced usage of the English language, Friel examines
the effects on the culture and people of Ireland. Reserved seating tickets
are available at the ticket center (x7590) and cost $7 for adults and $5
