Play on Thursday... "Translations," written by Irish playwright Brian Friel and directed by Amy Seham (theatre), will be presented at 8 p.m. Nov. 21-24 in Anderson Theatre. The play is based on the English colonization of 19th Century Ireland. The play is set in one of the Irish "hedge schools," banned but tolerated by the English 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 senior citizens and students. Remaining tickets will be on sale at the theatre box office 1 hour prior to show time.
