Lady G: Plays and Whisperings of Lady Gregory

Irish Repertory Theatre
New York City
February 12, 2020 – March 13, 2020

Lady Augusta Isabella Gregory was the grand dame of Irish Theatre. Today, she is remembered as co-founder of The Abbey Theatre in Dublin and for turning her Galway home, Coole Park, into the mecca of the Irish Literary Revival. Here she nurtured many of the great writers of the Irish Renaissance including WB Yeats, Sean O’Casey, and JM Synge. She was also the author of over forty plays and numerous translations and books of Irish folklore.

Lady G, an intimate Irish Rep production, drawn from Lady Gregory’s personal writings and rarely seen plays explores the remarkable life of a literary legend. Beneath the public persona of a dour Victorian widow lies a passionate heart and a wry sense of humor. Her plays “Workhouse Ward” and “McDonough’s Wife showcase her playful yet powerful vision of Ireland and her people.
