Local Irish playwright, Patrick Conroy, has written a powerful new play in tribute to the 100th year anniversary of the Irish Revolution. The 1970’s and 1980’s were a turbulent time in Irish History. The Irish Republican Army (IRA), a paramilitary organization seeking civil rights for its people and the reunification of Ireland defended their areas against the occupying British Forces. This fictitious story tells of the chance encounter of a young British Soldier and a recently retired IRA operative.  Their personal struggles, their lives and the lives of their families quickly become entangled and entwined. This play attempts to describe the thoughts and actions of people caught up in roles not entirely of their choosing. In war, there are no easy answers and lives are forever changed. Presented at the iconic McGurk’s Irish Pub in Soulard January 23, 24, 30, 31, February 1, 7, 8 @ 8pm and Jan 29 & Feb 5 @ 5pm. Arrive early for a delicious dinner and drinks. Table and wall seats available. For tickets or information call (314) 249-7488.
