TRAD offers a hilarious tale of hundred-year-old Thomas and his even more improbably ancient Da. Under the direction of Carmel O’Reilly, the cast features Nancy E. Carroll, Colin Hamell, and Derry Woodhouse.
In 2010, Tir Na Theatre staged Mark Doherty’s TRAD to critical acclaim and “sold out” audiences. Artistic Director Colin Hamell is thrilled to announce Tir Na’s remounting of what the Boston Globe called “the quintessential Irish play” April 29 to May 17 at Boston Center for the Arts Plaza Theatre.
A fable about tradition in a mad place, TRAD offers a hilarious tale of hundred-year-old Thomas and his even more improbably ancient Da. When Thomas reveals he fathered a son in a long-ago fling, the pair set off across the Irish countryside to find the unknown child, with nothing more than a hobble and limp to help them on their journey.
The creative team includes Carmel O’Reilly (Director), John Malinowski (Lights) Kathy Rushe (Costumes), and original music by Jim Doherty. The cast features Nancy E. Carroll (Sal, Father Rice), Colin Hamell (Da) and Derry Woodhouse (Thomas).
