Marsha Stephanie Blake, Eisa Davis, Dashiell Eaves and Robert Hogan appear in the LCT3 premiere of Kirsten Greenidge's Luck of the Irish, which begins performances Jan. 28 at the Claire Tow Theater.
Blake (Joe Turner's Come and Gone, The Merchant of Venice, Hurt Village), Davis (Passing Strange, "Smash"), Eaves (Observe The Sons of Ulster, A Behanding in Spokane) and Hogan (Blood and Gifts, "M*A*S*H") are joined by Frank Harts (A Raisin in the Sun), Jenny O'Hara (The Odd Couple), Carra Patterson (Wit), Amanda Quaid (Equus, Cock) and Victor Williams (A Small Fire).
Here's how it's billed: "When an upwardly mobile African-American couple wants to buy a home in an all-white neighborhood of 1950’s Boston, they pay a struggling Irish family to 'ghost-buy' a house on their behalf. Fifty years later, the Irish family wants 'their' house back. Moving across two eras, Luck of the Irish explores racial and social issues and the universal longing for home."
Here's a look at the LCT3 production:
