February is a month of firsts for Irish theater company Inis Nua.
They launch their first production of the season, stage their first play by the Tambor Award-winning Irish playwright Elaine Murphy, welcome local director Kathryn MacMillan to the Inis Nua family and hold their official opening at First Baptist Church in Center City.
Want to be a part of all those firsts? Nab a ticket to Little Gem, a Philadelphia premiere on stage February 7-26.
It’s a look into one transitional year in the lives of three generations of a Dublin family. Daughter Amber is taking a break from binge-drinking with the girls, mother Lorraine is testing the waters of love on the north side of 40, and Granny Kay is watching her dear man slip away.
Artistic Director Tom Reing calls the show “simply one of the best plays I’ve seen out of Ireland in the last ten years.”
