"LOVE IN THE TITLE"
by Hugh Leonard.
Director: Anne O'Connell
Performance Dates in Mill Theatre: Tuesday 5th April-Saturday 9th April
When Katie arrives in the field of Corcamore to paint a watercolor of the legendary stone of Clough-a-Regan, she is accompanied by youthful versions of her mother and grandmother. Katie exists in the present while the others are in their own time. Their conversations companionable and hostile by turns reveal family history and its intricate relation to the wider story of Irish culture. Humorous discussions of social prejudice, religious fervour and perennial man trouble movingly evoke the mixture of nostalgia and progressiveness that characterized the twentieth century.
