Logo for Lovers by Brian Friel

by Brian Friel

Lovers is subtle combination of comedy and tragedy, that enlists our sympathy for what we think of as the victim and our hopes for though we assume is going to be the hero. Each act can stand alone as its own play. However when performed together it can open our eyes to love, passion and tragedy.
Directed by Justin Kirkeberg
