Performances begin September 27 for the Irish Repertory Theatre production of The Home Place by Brian Friel. Artistic Director Charlotte Moore directs the New York premiere on the theatre’s mainstage.
The Home Place debuted at the Gate Theatre in Dublin in 2005. Set over the course of a single day in rural Ireland in 1878, the play follows the aftermath of a doctor’s Darwin-inspired experiments on the locals. A widowed man and his son, who are both in love with their housekeeper, are also at the heart of the story.
The cast is made up of Logan Riley Bruner (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) , Andrea Lynn Green (Harrison, TX: Three Plays by Horton Foote), Johnny Hopkins (The Pigeon in Taj Mahal), Robert Langdon Lloyd (The Burial At Thebes), Ed Malone (Juno and the Paycock) as David Gore, Polly McKie (A Day by the Sea), Rachel Pickup (Dancing At Lughnasa), Stephen Pilkington (The Winslow Boy), Christopher Randolph (King Lear), Gordon Tashjian (The Killer), and John Windsor-Cunningham (The Man Who Came To Dinner).
The production will open October 10 and is scheduled to play through November 19.
The Home Place features set design by James Noone (Sunset Boulevard), costume design by David Toser (Finian’s Rainbow), lighting design by Michael Gottlieb (Rebel in the Soul), sound design and original music by Ryan Rumery (Curvy Widow), sound design by M. Florian Staab (Curvy Widow), properties by Sven Henry Nelson (The Pigeon in the Taj Mahal), and dialects by Stephen Gabis (Indecent).
