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)

Left Bank Books welcomes LGBTQ and AIDS activist Cleve Jones, who will sign and discuss his memoir, "When We Rise: My Life in the Movement"!
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "When We Rise" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
The partial inspiration for the ABC television miniseries, Cleve Jones's memoir is a sweeping, profoundly moving account of his life from sexually liberated 1970s San Francisco, through the AIDS crisis, and up to his present-day involvement with the marriage equality battle. By turns tender and uproarious, "When We Rise" chronicles the heartbreak of losing countless friends to AIDS; his co-founding of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation; his conception of the AIDS Memorial Quilt; the bewitching story of 1970s San Francisco; and the harrowing, sexy, and sometimes hilarious stories of Cleve's passionate relationships with friends and lovers during an era defined by both unprecedented freedom and violence alike.
In 1876 Maine, Abbie (writer-director Erica Fae) tends the lighthouse on a remote island for her ailing husband. When a mysterious stranger washes up on shore, secrets buried in deep waters come to light, and Abbie is forced to navigate an unforgiving new world and reckon with both her past and her future. Inspired by the true stories of women lighthouse keepers, “To Keep the Light” — which won the 2016 SLIFF New Filmmakers Forum Emerging Director Award — uses the composite character of Abbie to give voice to their largely unknown experience. Working in isolation and under extreme conditions, these women — who inherited their jobs from infirm or deceased husbands or fathers — were trailblazers, embodying feminism long before the word existed and far from the urban, intellectual circles that spawned the women’s rights movement. Nuanced and true to her times, Abbie is a female lead rarely depicted on screen: strong and stoic, sensual but not sexualized. Shot on an island off the coast of northern Maine, “To Keep the Light” revealingly illuminates the tumultuous inner life of a woman who is, literally and figuratively, at the edge of society.
