Irish Rep's Double Bill of After Luke and When I Was God Extends

News   Irish Rep's Double Bill of After Luke and When I Was God Extends The pairing of Cónal Creedon's After Luke and When I Was God will get a one-week extension at Irish Repertory Theatre in Manhattan, now to Sept. 27.

Tim Ruddy directs the two "potent one-act plays exploring the fragile world of father/son relationships in contemporary Ireland."

Strong ticket sales and good reviews inspired the extension. The cast includes Gary Gregg, Colin Lane and Michael Mellamphy.

According to Irish Rep, "After Luke, set in the heyday of Ireland's recent boom, explores the greed-driven frenzy of the property market when one son returns from abroad and manipulates the sale of the home place. When I Was God is a searing drama of a father's heartbreaking expectations for his son in sports. We witness through the eyes of a ten-year-old the longings of a fanatical dad. On the field of dreams, the referee is God — but what happens when God is made man?"

After Luke and When I Was God has set design by Lex Liang, costumes by David Toser, lighting design by Brian Nason and sound design by Shannon Slaton.

Off-Broadway's Irish Repertory Theatre is located at 132 W. 22nd Street. Tickets are $65 and $55, and can be purchased by calling (212) 727-2737 or at the Irish Repertory Theatre box office. For more information, visit www.irishrep.org.
