The very best by one of Ireland's best writers, Translations, set in the fictional Northern Irish village of Baile Beag, tells of the historical attempt to subdue the Irish people through suppression of their native tongue. It is a timeless story which is at once heartbreaking, heartwarming, frustrating and funny, as we see cultures collide yet love, hope and truth live on.  

It arises from and speaks to the universally common language of ‘heart’ which can bridge all divides.

Another US premiere from Upstream Theater, in co-production with Stages Repertory Theatre of Houston. Directed by Kenn McLaughlin. Tim Price's SALT, ROOT AND ROE is a poetic masterwork about the nature of change, the comfort of home, and the eternal bond of love, set against the mythical backdrop of the Pembrokeshire coast in western Wales. The play centers on identical twins Iola and Anest, who are very devoted to each other. Ageing fast, and with the time they have together more fragile by the day, they arrive at a desperate decision. Word of this reaches Anest’s daughter Menna, who rushes to her long-abandoned childhood home where her own ideas of love and compromise are tested to the limit. In spite of its somber themes, the play is light, textured and at times very funny—and in the words of one reviewer “like a pebble picked from a Pembrokeshire beach… something to take home and reflect over, something that evokes a smell of the sea..”

The traditional landscape painting often contains a horizon line, recognizable landforms, and an idealized representation of Nature. Looking deeper, the historic use of the landscape mirrors the inner-state of that society's relationship to the political, religious, economic, and natural world around it. "Layered Place" invites viewers to reevaluate their definition of landscape, and consider the multiple "layers" of the multi-faceted modern landscape. This group exhibit delves into humanity's tumultuous relationship with Nature, visual metaphors for Place, social and cultural identity, family heritage, and way-finding. 

The exhibition includes work by St. Louis-based artists Jenna Bauer, Meghan Grubb, Song Park, Mandy Pedigo, Allana Ross, John Sarra, and Jon Young, and is curated by Charis Norell.

The exhibition will be up FEBRUARY 9 - APRIL 30

GALLERY HOURS ARE WEEKDAYS FROM 9AM - 6PM

Acclaimed journalist Kirk Wallace Johnson presents a rollicking true-crime adventure about the theft of nearly 300 bird skins from a natural history museum in England. It’s a story that leads readers through 19th century scientific expeditions into the jungles of Malaysia, the “feather fever” of the turn-of-the century fashion and the Victorian art of salmon fly-tying and its fanatic, modern-day practitioners. The gripping story of a bizarre and shocking crime, and one man’s relentless pursuit of justice, “The Feather Thief” is also a fascinating exploration of obsession, and man’s destructive instinct to harvest the beauty of nature.

Happy Birthday to the legend. Join four of St. Louis’ finest jazz musicians as they honor one of the true titans of jazz, Duke Ellington. It is in honor of his great genius that The Focal Point & The Christopher Parrish Quartet are proud to present the second annual Duke Ellington Birthday Celebration Concert.  Duke was positively electric in his music and influence on jazz; Christopher Parrish is proud to present a night of all electric instrumentation, something rarely heard in conjunction with Duke’s popular music and in a small-group setting. The members of the Christopher Parrish Quartet will be announced late February.

Christopher Parrish (Jazz Pianist/Band Leader):

Christopher prides himself on his virtuoso technique, power and breadth as an improviser. Speaking in terms of genre, his greatest passion lies not in any one style of jazz but in the components of jazz music itself. Christopher comes from a highly musical family. Although he hated the idea of formal piano lessons as a child, he took to teaching himself with obsessive determination. Originally from Indiana, he moved to St. Louis in 2017 to further his career in music. Both fiery and contemplative, his playing is often characterized by dramatic changes in mood and texture. In addition to his solo playing around the St. Louis area, Christopher is excited for the 2nd Annual Duke Ellington birthday show here at the Focal Point in April; The Focal Point is delighted to welcome him back!

In 1988, Helen Gannon, a highly experienced dancer who hails from Ireland’s Limerick City, apprenticed to Maureen Hall in Missouri’s Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program (TAAP), preparing for Irish teaching certification. Thanks to decades of experience, the apprenticeship, and subsequent certification, “Mrs. G” is recognized widely as an advocate for the Irish arts locally in St. Louis, regionally, nationally, and internationally. She led three apprenticeships in TAAP herself and encouraged others to team up in more than a dozen apprenticeships in Irish song, harp, accordion, fiddle, pipes, and tin whistle. Join us to hear Mrs. G’s oral history, as she shares stories about her experiences—as an apprentice and master teacher. The evening begins with special guest Liz Weir, a St. Louis Storytelling Festival 2019 Featured Teller from Northern Ireland, and closes with live Irish music and dance from St. Louis Irish Arts.

Left Bank Books welcomes food writer and St. Louis native Elizabeth Minchilli, who will sign and discuss her new book, "The Italian Table: Creating Festive Meals for Family and Friends"! Snacks and refreshments will be provided at this event!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "The Italian Table" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. 

"The Italian Table" delivers both parts of the fantasy and reality of Italian meals as they would be eaten on location. Combining menus and recipes with visual experience and inspiration—as well as insight into the traditions of the food and celebrations—it serves as a practical resource that gives home cooks and hosts step-by-step guidance on how to re-create these fabulous meals at their own tables. With a resources section for Italian ingredients; headnotes brimming with interesting history, recipe shortcuts, and serving suggestions; and menu introductions detailing what to drink, how to set the table, and how to time the preparation and the party itself, this is an essential guide for those who love to entertain.
