Irish Repertory Theatre is proud to announce its first-ever Online Summer Season. This summer will feature three of Irish Rep’s most beloved recent productions reimagined for the screen and filmed remotely for limited release as part of “A Performance on Screen,” including “Yes! Reflections of Molly Bloom,” “The Weir,” and “Love, Noël: The Songs and Letters of Noël Coward.” The season will also include the World Premiere of Darren Murphy’s short play “The Gifts You Gave to the Dark,” and a special online celebration—The Irish (Rep)… and How We Got That Way: A Celebration of Endurance and Perseverance Through Hard Times, featuring a screening of the 1998 Irish Rep World Premiere production of Frank McCourt’s The Irish…and How They Got That Way.
Kicking off the summer season is the World Premiere of The Gifts You Gave to the Dark, written by Darren Murphy (Irish Blood, English Heart) specifically for digital media in reaction to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis. Directed by Caitríona McLaughlin (Associate Director, Abbey Theatre) and featuring music by Carl Kennedy, The Gifts You Gave to the Dark premiered on Wednesday May 27, 2020 at 6PM EST and will remain online through October 2020.
