From the Tony Award winning author of the musical Once comes a dark comedy right in time for the St. Patrick's Day festivities. Enda Walsh's play New Electric Ballroom about a "hermetically" sealed Irish family concerns three shut-in sisters living in an isolated coastal town in the West of Ireland. The oldest two - Breda (Gwen Watson) and Clara (Aileen Kelly) - haven't left the house in decades and stick to the confines of their living room where they play a repetitious game while Ada (Mary Claire Ryan) gets out to work at the local cannery, but may be the most cocooned of all. Catch it at The Courtyard Playhouse from tonight and over the weekend at 8pm.
