By Martin McDonagh

A Theatre Macabre Production

Irish terrorist “Mad Padraic” cares about one thing, and one alone, and -- despite his title as the lieutenant of Inishmore’s Irish National Liberation Army -- it’s not his fight for Irish independence. It’s his cat. When Padraic learns that his beloved cat, Wee Thomas, has been killed, Padraic rushes home, forgoing the nipple-excising he’d planned to do on a partly-tortured Belfast drug pusher. As Padraic plows through the town in pursuit of revenge, bodies to pile up in his wake. As fierce as he may be, however, Padriac’s soft spot for Wee Thomas may be the weak spot the next aspiring Lieutenant of Inishmore needs to target. This dark and bloody comedy, is the second play in Martin McDonough’s Aaran Islands trilogy, which also includes The Cripple of Inishmaan and The Banshees of Inisheer.

Next To Normal, a rock musical, opened on Broadway on April 2009 with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey, and music by Tom Kitt. It won three Tony awards in 2009 including Best Musical Score. It also won the 2010 Pulitzer Award and made numerous Top Ten Best Shows lists.

Next to Normal examines how one typical suburban family handles the slow retreat into manic depression that the mother is battling. Critics call it “an emotional powerhouse” that explores how a family deals with grief and weighs the ethics of psychiatry, as it depicts family life in a suburban setting. It is presented with love, sympathy, and punch. Talk backs with cast after Sunday productions. Directed by Edward Coffield, starring Debby Lennon*, John Flack*, Libby Jasper, Max Baneham, Ryand Scott Foizey, Spencer Davis Milford* (*member Actors Equity)

The St. Louis Water Gardening Society will present its 17th annual water garden and pond tour, Pond-O-Rama, Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.  The 2017 tour has 40 private gardens owned and maintained by Society members. Tickets covering both days of the tour are $15 each and are available early May at retail shops and garden centers throughout the metropolitan area. Everyone on the tour over age 18 requiresa separate ticket.

    The gardens are located throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area, including in Illinois. This self-guided tour is arranged each day by geographic location. This year many of our water features are "over the top". This year many of our members are new on Pond-O-Rama  and excited to share their new ponds and waterfalls. The water features range from spectacular high, thundering waterfalls to quiet streams. There are “pond less waterfalls” that simply disappear at the termination of the falls, and a number of new  rain-recovery systems that make the storage and use of rainfall practical. Many of our members have new water gardens to share, and many have enhanced their current ponds and gardens into outdoor rooms and quaint woodland spaces.  This year you will see some very unique and creative designs in waterfalls and ponds, gorgeous koi fish, and fantastic gardens.

   This event, each year, is the only time St. Louis Water Gardening Society members—as a group—open their gardens to the public. In addition to their water features, most of our hosts also are avid gardeners who maintain beautiful landscapes filled with perennials, annuals and shrubs. Our hosts will be available and delighted to share information and answer questions about their gardens, their water features, their fish, and their beautiful plants. If you are thinking of adding water to your own garden—or you

simply enjoy beautiful landscapes and a weekend filled with beauty—this is the tour for you!

    This event provides funds for the St Louis Water Gardening Society to continue their civic project to plant and maintain the reflecting pools at the Jewel Box in Forest Park.

   The tour ticket booklet gives location addresses, descriptions and driving directions. For more information, call (314) 995-2988. Tickets are available by mail order from the Society’s website in early May, www.slwgs.org.
