Truth, fiction or wishful thinkin’… you decide. On the run and reinventing himself along the way, a young stranger arrives in a remote Irish village with a dark secret begging to be told. Gossip and outrageous speculation stir up passions when this fine teller of tall tales turns winner of women and sport, and bumbles his way into romance and celebrity. In a rare revival of the explosively funny Irish classic that caused riots after its 1907 Dublin debut, this farcical, lilting masterpiece takes the stage by storm and unleashes a peculiar poetic justice. Written by J.M. Synge and directed by Dámaso Rodriguez.

Performances run through June 22. Visit Organizer Website for dates, times and ticket purchase or call Theatre Box Office at 503-241-1278.
