What a contest:QE I vs Gráinne Ní Mháille (Grace O’Malley) in The Conversation, a new play by St. Louis native Dennis Corcoran at The Focal Point in Maplewood. You don’t  have to be English or Irish to know that an ancient, deeply rooted animosity exists between England and Ireland over sovereignty and religion. 

In this always ambitious yet mostly pretentious philosophic cosmic conversation, "Brother Lies, Sister Truth," an original play written, directed and produced by Mark Pannebecker and his neophyte nonprofit pending Panther Productions, provided one answer to that question, though its two young sibling contenders never satisfactorily answered the paradoxical polemic about the nature and "fate of Mankind."

How many times have you almost had a star-crossed or star-blessed moment in a relationship? Citilites' production of Almost, Maine offers up to the shooting stars nine such lost-and found-moments at the St. Charles Foundry Art Centre this weekend.
