Directed by Richard Twyman, the limited engagement, which stars Dermot Crowley (The Weir, Translations) and Tony Award nominee Dearbhla Molloy (Dancing at Lughnasa, A Touch of the Poet), continues through April 1.
In Give Me Your Hand, according to Irish Rep, "Paul Durcan has taken some of the most famous paintings in the world, and interpreted them with his own unique, poetic voice. Two of Ireland's most eminent actors, Dermot Crowley and Dearbhl Molloy, take an imaginative stroll through the National Gallery and re-discover everyone from Van Gogh and Van Eyck, to Rubens and Gainsborough, through the unique prism of the author's imagination."
The production features original music and technical direction by Jamie Beamish. Video filming and editing are by Daniel Grixti.
The Irish Repertory Theatre, founded by Ciarán O'Reilly and Charlotte Moore in 1988, brings works by Irish and Irish-American masters and contemporary playwrights to American audiences, to provide a context for understanding the contemporary Irish-American experience, and to encourage the development of new works focusing on the Irish and Irish-American experience.
